Casablanca, Morocco (PressExposure) June 23, 2009 -- Various strategic alliance partners attended project update and opportunity briefing meetings conducted throughout the week. The Conference was organized by John L. Habib, GOVâs President and General Counsel, and Mr. Mehdi Mouttalib, GOVâs New Business Development Manager who heads the companyâs Casablanca office.
The bulk of the weekâs meetings were held with executives from the U.A.E.âs rapidly growing renewable energy and green technologies sectors. In particular, meetings were held with the Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company, known globally under its trade name âMASDARâ, which included a site visit to MASDARâs âZero Carbonâ city now under development. Sorouh Real Estate, one of Abu Dhabiâs largest Abu Dhabi Stock Exchange-listed real estate development companies which specializes in green technology building principles in its developments, also hosted GOVâs executives for a briefing meeting. GOVâs Mouttalib commented, âI was thoroughly impressed with the progress already achieved by the ground-breaking initiatives undertaken by these regional powerhouses in the renewable energy field.â
In addition to private sector companies, strategic alliance meetings were conducted with several key trade associations in Abu Dhabi, including The American Business Group-Abu Dhabi (âABGâ). The ABG is Abu Dhabiâs largest western trade association, which has a growing membership base of companies active in the renewable energy field that are seeking to establish a presence in Morocco. Because GOV is a member of the American Chamber of Commerce - Morocco, GOV works closely with both of these rapidly expanding trade associations.
At each meeting, Mr. Mouttalib delivered detailed presentations on Gate One Venturesâ extensive activities in Morocco within the field of renewable energy, and on Moroccoâs overall business climate and emerging opportunities for 2009 and beyond. Given its focus on Corporate Social Responsibility programs, GOV concluded the week by attending the Annual Charity Gala Banquet of the Canadian Business Council of Abu Dhabi (âCBCâ), and making a donation to the charities feted during the evening. The CBC also represents a wide array of âgreen-techâ companies seeking a foothold in Morocco, some of whom are presently in negotiations with GOV on joint venture opportunities.
âThe Conference proved to be a successful opportunity for GOVâs alliance partners to highlight the great potential that the Moroccan market holds in 2009 and beyondâ, said Mr. Habib. âThe size of investment capital being deployed in the renewable energy sector in Morocco â particularly in wind energy â is quite impressive, and sustainable. Joint venture partners in the Gulf are taking notice that Morocco came away relatively unscathed from the credit crisis turmoil presently devastating U.S. and E.U. Zone economies. Because of GOVâs aggressively pro-investment position in Morocco, our company will remain at the forefront of sourcing opportunities and investment funds for the benefit of its sophisticated client base doing business in North Africa as well as the Arabian Gulf.â
