Tomorrow Foundation was present as a partner of the Amadeus Institute to the 12th edition of the MEDays International Forum organized in Tangier from November 12 to 16th, 2019 under the High Patronage of His Majesty King Mohammed VI.

Created in 2008, the MEDays Forum is organized each year in November by the Amadeus Institute, over a period of four days. The main objective of the Forum is to highlight Royal Initiatives and Actions at national and international levels with a focus on South-South dimension and uninhibited South-North relations.

The Forum holds over thirty sessions and panels and gathers a community of high level speakers from five continents: Heads of State, Heads of Government, Ministers and Policy Makers, Nobel Laureates, Heads of international organizations, Business Leaders, Investors, Experts and prominent Foreign Personalities. The MEDays Forum regroups between 3000 and 4500 participants each year.

This year edition was held under the theme “The Global Distrust Crisis: facing Uncertainties and Subversion” and the threat that Humanity is unable to attain humanity. Disunity of Europe, rise of populism, migration crisis as one side of global crisis, economic war between USA and China were the major topics discussed. In addition to the 5000 participants and 250 international high level personalities, the Forum also welcomed this year His Excellency Mr. Macky Sall, President of the Republic of Senegal and his Excellency Mr. Julius Maada Bio, President of the Republic of Sierra Leone.

Tomorrow Foundation founder Mrs Gu was invited to take part to the conference debate under the theme “Terrorism, Immigration and refugees: From confrontation to cooperation?” on Saturday 16th November among a panel of prestigious personalities such as the former US Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs or the Representative of the UN General Secretary.  During her speech, Mrs Gu reminded that in developing countries, becoming terrorists for most people is not so much a choice but a necessity to survive and the necessity for EU and Africa to fight the roots of migration and extremism as a long term strategy through economic development.

Founded as the Forum in 2008, the Amadeus Institute is an independent Think Tank positioned as a laboratory of ideas, a space for reflection and a creator of debate for issues related to the African continent. Expert in analyzing the global issues of the international agenda, the Institute aims also to have an operational role while operating in the areas of advisory, economic intelligence, influence communication, strategic events production and training.
