French Prime Minister Édouard Philippe visits the ESSEC Africa-Atlantic campus

During an official visit to Rabat, Morocco, Prime Minister Édouard Philippe visited the ESSEC Africa-Atlantic campus. Accompanied by a delegation of ten French ministers, he was able to meet and interact with ESSEC students studying on the campus.

"On this beautiful campus, we bring together people from many different backgrounds who are here to learn, to work, to think, and to debate together. It may not seem consequential, but it is essential.” Édouard Philippe visited the ESSEC Africa-Atlantic campus in Rabat, Morocco on Thursday, November 16. The Prime Minister, on an official visit to Morocco as part of the 13th high-level Morocco-France meeting, was able to meet with and speak to ESSEC Business School students for one hour.

"What's happening here on this campus is decisive individually and collectively," he told students in attendance. “Such actions are important for France. It must show that our country is able to live up to our expectations in terms of higher education, that we are able to assume ancient traditions, but that we can also invent and create innovative, attractive concepts that are adapted to the requirements of our time, and this establishment is exactly that. You can be very proud to have imagined and to have so quickly brought to fruition such an impressive concept which promises to be successful. "

The Prime Minister made the trip with ten members from his cabinet who were also able to meet with the students: Nicole Belloubet, Keeper of the Seals, Minister of Justice, Françoise Nyssen, Minister of Culture, Jean-Michel Blanquer, Minister of National Education, Laura Flessel, Minister of Sport, Jacqueline Gourault, Minister, attached to the Minister of the Interior, Élisabeth Borne, Minister for Transport, attached to the Minister for the Ecological and Inclusive Transition, Nathalie Loiseau, Minister for European Affairs, attached to the Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs, Brune Poirson, Minister of State, attached to the Minister for the Ecological and Inclusive Transition, Geneviève Darrieussecq, Minister of State, attached to the Minister for the Armed Forces and Benjamin Griveaux, Minister of State, attached to the Minister of Economy and Finance.

Édouard Philippe concluded his visit by advising students, "You are lucky to be here. Enjoy it and let those around you enjoy it. You have the opportunity to change the world."
