After a two-year delay, the United States ambassador to Morocco David T. Fischer has finally arrived in Morocco. On Wednesday, the newly confirmed diplomat was received by Morocco’s Foreign Affairs Minister Nasser Bourita to whom he presented his credentials.

Ambassador David T. Fischer was sworn in as the United States Ambassador to the Kingdom of Morocco on January 16, 2020 and he arrived in Rabat on the 21st of the same month.

Nominated by President Donald Trump, in November 2017, to be Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United States to the Kingdom of Morocco, American businessman David T. was confirmed, in December 2019, by the US Senate through voice vote.

This confirmation put an end to a long waiting period that prevented the Suburban Collection Chairman and CEO from taking office in Rabat.

Indeed, Fischer’s nomination as the US ambassador to Morocco was marked by an unusual delay. Before his nomination was returned to the US President in January, the diplomat has seen his file blocked for years.
