Thank you for the pictures so far and the programme, to me, it doesnt look like a busy trip at all. They could fit sometime in for sightseeing.
Any idea if they will go to Rabat? Its quite a short drive from Casablanca.

Morocco 11-22-2009 03:31 PM

you don't know if they are scheduled to have a diner with H.M KING MOHAMMED VI and H.R.H LALLA SALMA ?

Mademoiselle Lilo 11-22-2009 03:40 PM

i don't know if they will go to Rabat i am not so sure about,its an economic mission and casablanca is somehow the economic capital of Morocco so its undrestood they will have most of their engagement there.
i can say something about the programme posted by Shrifia,seems to me uncompleted.

The agenda posted by shrifia (thanks :flowers:) displays the basic schedule for the businesspeople who accompany Philippe and Mathilde. It´s not the princely agenda, which is usually quite busy and not so much of the sightseeing kind. The Belgian court unfortunately doesn’t publish the agenda online though. According to Brussels Export the delegation will go to Rabat indeed.
Judged by the accompanying ministers and businesspeople the focus is on energy and transportation (especially shipping/harbour business), and there’s also a focus on development cooperation. Mathilde usually takes the businesswomen and female entrepreneurs under her wings, visits micro credit projects and given that the minister of higher education is there as well, her main field of work probably will be education this time.

Thanks Mara for the clarification :flowers:
I thought that was the CP couples agenda. Many houses dont release an agenda and I do understand why and one of them for security reasons.

Prince Phillipe at an important conference in Marrackech. Apparently there are 300 business men and women with the Belgium Princes. Several other international Congressmen, investors and politicians from all over the world, North African and Arab personalities included, chose to be part of the event. The main topic being how to face the world economic crises.
I hope they put Prince Philipe and Princess Mathilde at La Mamounia or some other lavish hotel, I don't think Casablanca has any appropriate hotels yet to host Princely Couples.

Casablanca has a few 5 star hotels such as the Hyatt regency hotel & Sheraton hotel & resort :flowers:

I had not expected the couple to take around 300 people, thats a big amount of delegation.

Princess Mathilde really is a beautiful and elegant woman:whistling:

Don't get me wrong Dazzling, I am sure that Casablanca is indeed putting a lot of effort in renovating all of its five star hotels:smile:! but really the beauty and uniqueness of the Hotels in Marrackech is more appropriate for the luxury and confort of Princely Couples as well as for all the important personalities.
→ HOTEL LA MAMOUNIA - HOTEL LUXE MARRAKECH - OFFICIAL WEB SITE - HOTEL SPA MARRAKECH LA MAMOUNIA MAROC
Amanjena - Luxury resort hotel Marrakech - home
These two hotels are just two of the extraordinary ones in Marrackech, there is I think the Four Seasons and the Mondrian and a bunch of others that are far more luxurious and serene then standard five star hotels.
