"Morocco is an ancient civilization known for its creativity in artistic fields such as music, fashion, design, decoration and culinary art," said Mr Aziz Rifki in the introduction of this meeting. 

Mr Albert Oiknine, talked about the moroccan inspiration in his designs and Haute couture creations.

In his intervention, Mr Faouzi Skalli argues that "culinary art is a vehicle of culture and a platform for cultural exchange that is part of our history". Added  that "the culinary art highlights the Amazigh, Arabo-Andalusian and Jewish components and tributaries of Moroccan culture".

He published a philosophical tale, "Le Petit Mouloud" (The small Mouloud) which spreads out the notion of the "souk" which is not "just a messy space but an exchange platform".
