Few people know Yariv Elbaz as he prefers to work in the shadows, far from the cameras and the media. He is a Jewish businessman of Moroccan origin, engineer and one of the sponsors of the normalization agreement between Morocco and Israel, according to the New York Times.
The 44-year-old Yariv Elbaz is one of the most important businessmen in the United States and the world. He has a deep friendship with Jared Kushner, the advisor and son-in-law of U.S. President Donald Trump, whose origins are Jewish, and who led the negotiations of the agreement of the century and Arab-Israeli normalization, after several visits to the region.
Yariv also has business relations with Kushner, especially in some African countries such as Gabon. He has been working to bridge the gap between Morocco, Israel and the United States since 2017.
Elbaz is the owner of the Tria brand among many others, and has relations with several presidents of African countries. Indeed, he is very close to the Gabonese president and his sister, according to close sources who describe him as shy and reserved and does not like to appear in parties, events or media. Yariv comes from a Moroccan family originally from Bejaâd (Bouabid Cherki), but he spent most of his childhood in the city of Kenitra, where he obtained his baccalaureate in 1994. He then left Morocco for France in order to pursue his higher education in Paris (Europe Paris), and then in the United States.
