Redouan El-Younsi ’90 reaching out across the world
Redouan El-Younsi ’90 of Tetouan, Morocco, has been elected a member of the industrial branch and president of the electoral body commission of the Chamber of Commerce of Tetouan. The 41 chamber members represent industry, commerce and services.
“The main role of the Chamber of Commerce is to promote, defend and represent the business community,” he says. El-Younsi was elected secretary general by the members of the chamber for a six-year term. In this capacity, he conducts meetings with the staff and the board of the chamber for decision-making, and keeps the general elected members informed about the developments of the chamber.
As part of his role, El-Younsi met with the U.S. ambassador to the Kingdom of Morocco, focusing on the Morocco-United States Free Trade Agreement.
“We discussed the excellent relations that exist between the two countries ever since the independence of the United States,” ElYounsi says. “Indeed, Morocco was the first country to recognize the independence of the United States, and we have the longest unbroken treaty with the United States.”
El-Younsi recently visited Washington, D.C. to promote small- and medium-sized businesses and business women associations as part of a delegation of the Association of the Mediterranean Chamber of Commerce.
