Premier at womens forum event in Morocco
Premier Paula Cox travelled to Morocco for a conference organised by the International Womens Forum.
She was accompanied by members of the groups Bermuda chapter Business Bermuda CEO Cheryl Packwood and general manager of internet provider North Rock Communications, Vicki Coelho.

The Bermudian women joined over 300 delegates from 27 countries to discuss the future of the Arab world and womens role in it. The related issue of successfully integrating culturally diverse societies was another subject of debate.
Conference attendees were also welcomed at the Royal Palace at Dar Essalam, King Mohammed VI and Princess Lalla Slamas private residence, for a reception.
