Official launch of the Gazelles Morocco China rally

Official launch of the Gazelles Morocco China rally

By Cassandra Tanti - November 20, 2019

The new Gazelles Morocco China rally has been officially launched, supported by the Chinese branch of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation.

The rally was launched at a press conference on 22nd October in Beijing in the presence of dignitaries, officials, organisers and 18 Gazelles of 12 different nationalities who then participated in promoting the event in Naiman Province from 23rd to 26th October.
This new opus is an emanation of the famous Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc, whose codes it also adopts: a 100% female event driven by the values of solidarity, sharing and surpassing oneself.

President of the Chinese branch of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation Robert Shi recalled the support that the Prince’s foundation has provided for several years to the electrical section of the Rallye des Gazelles. Its deployment in China, which has hosted a foundation representative office since the summer of 2019, is a great example to follow in Asia, he said.

According to Mr Shi, the event is in line with the strategy and public policy desired by the Chinese authorities as part of the promotion of sustainable development and clean mobility initiatives.

The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation also welcomed the commitment of Dominique Serra and her teams, for their involvement and determination to see this initiative materialise in China, and for helping to promote sustainable mobility across borders in order to create a global and collective movement, to which the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation is committed.
