Johannesburg – Morocco, under the leadership of HM King Mohammed VI, has successfully met the challenge of change and development, stressed on Thursday the South African paper “The Daily Maverick”.
“King Mohammed VI has been central in driving change across Morocco’s economy and politics since his accession in 1999,” the paper wrote in an article that focuses on Morocco’s choice to make technology and industry the driving force for its exemplary development.
The publication highlighted the change experienced by Morocco in 2011 with the new Constitution, desired and proposed by the Sovereign and acclaimed by the Moroccan people at a referendum.
Taking advantage of this innovative policy framework, Morocco has used the crisis that has swept the Arab region in 2011 to initiate positive change, said “the Daily Maverick,” stressing the momentum of technological and industrial development in Morocco.
The publication cited in this regard the example of the technology park, located 10 km north of Rabat, which serves as an incubator for start-ups in technology sectors of high added value.
Over 50 companies are located in this industrial hub benefiting from several fiscal, financial and logistical advantages, the paper said, adding that a Technopark was established in Casablanca in 2001, hosting 260 start-ups in the field of information technology.
The automobile industry is another sector where Morocco is making significant achievements, the paper said, recalling the entry into the Moroccan market of leading manufacturers such as Renault.
In ten years, Morocco has managed to develop highways, ports and railways, the paper noted, highlighting the importance of renewable energy development of tourism, information technology and agriculture.
