Mr. Africa of Morocco, he left his mark on the Department of African Affairs at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation. It was in 2005 that he was appointed head of this department, which has become strategic since the Sovereign made Africa one of the main axes of Moroccan diplomacy, and the hunting ground for major Moroccan groups. Reached the age limit, his retirement was delayed by Salaheddine El Othmani for services rendered and while waiting to find a replacement at his height. Abdellatif Bendahane will thus be reappointed in 2011 to the position he will not leave until September 2012. Since then, the former director of African Affairs at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation has been appointed adviser to the President of Burkina Faso, Blaise Compaoré and at the same time created BD Consulting for Africa, which advises and supports all players interested in the African market. It must be said that his time at the head of the African Affairs Department of Foreign Affairs allowed him both to weave a high-level network in African countries and to better understand all the challenges of the continent.
