Israel, Morocco Co-Host Women in Innovation Conference in Marrakesh

Almost 100 female business leaders from four continents gathered in Morocco two weeks ago for the Women Connect to Innovate conference where they discussed women-driven innovation as a path to regional prosperity.

The three-day conference in Marrakesh was hosted by the Israeli nonprofit Start-Up Nation Central and Morocco’s Consensus Public Relations firm.

This collaboration involving women from across the Middle East and Africa served as a reminder of how much Israel’s position in the region has improved in just a few years.

The 2020 Abraham Accords normalized Israel’s relations with the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Morocco. In 2021, Sudan signed on as well. Since the signing of the agreements, the countries have established substantial partnerships with Israel.

Conferences like this one and other forms of innovation diplomacy have helped Israel to cement its partnerships with countries in the region. (JPost / VFI News)
