MAP is represented at this 27th General Assembly of the Alliance by its Director General and Chairman of AMAN, Khalil Hachimi Idrissi.

The program of this session, which is being held on October 2-4, includes the presentation of AMAN's moral and financial report as well as a ceremony to award the best photo and best article.

A seminar is also organized on the sidelines of the General Assembly under the theme "Fake news, a threat to information culture: What can news agencies do?".

Participants in this event stressed the need to implement provisions to combat false news and inaccurate facts, calling for a strengthening of the legal arsenal against "fake news".

They also advocated for respect for the profession's ethics and the consolidation of rules to protect personal rights.

MAP was appointed Chairman of AMAN for the period 2017-2018 at the 26th General Assembly of the Alliance, held in July 2017 in Agadir.

The mandate entrusted to MAP Director General was marked by the launch of several initiatives and professional actions aimed at consolidating the unity and solidarity as well as the performance of AMAN, a major platform for debate and consultation to defend the ideas and values common to the Mediterranean.

Created in 1991, AMAN brings together 19 news agencies in addition to observer members, including the Atlantic Federation of African News Agencies (FAAPA), represented by its Secretary-general, Mohamed Anis.
