Crown Princess Mary:

"Meeting the Moroccan youth has been inspiring. During the four days of being part of the Innovation Lab, they have gone from problem analysis to innovative solutions.
Talent is one thing, but one must also have the right approach. When I asked one of the 100 young Moroccan talents if it had been a tough four days, she replied that when tools, space and support are available, it is our duty to do everything we can to create the best results - and in that way give back.
Such an approach promises well for the future"
