Rabat – Marsa Maroc announced its ambitious decision to expand in Morocco and integrate international markets, specifically in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The top management at Marsa Maroc gave a press conference on Friday in Casablanca, following the publication of the company’s results of its 2016-quarter.
Marsa Maroc announced that it was shortlisted, among other four foreign operators, by the Ports Authority of Ghana to tender for the operation of the port that specializes in bulk.
Mohammed Abdeljalil, Marsa Maroc’s CEO, stated that the company, a national leader in the management of port terminals, “is currently preparing its application file,” noting that the market amounts to 50 million euros.
This decision falls within Marsa Maroc’s strategic plan to seek new opportunities for development, not only in Morocco but also in other African countries, reported the French-language news source Medias24.
Locally, Marsa Maroc will begin the exploitation of Container Terminal 3 of the Casablanca port this October, as well as Container Terminal 3 at the port of Tangier Med II, scheduled to start in November 2019.
Marsa Maroc has realized a consolidated turnover of MAD 1.3 billion at the end of June 2016, against MAD 1.04 billion at the end of June 2015. This turnover represents an increase of 23 percent despite the stagnation of overall traffic goods, limited to 18.5 million tons.
In this regard, the company’s leadership stated its satisfaction at the results of the first quarter: “We had a good semester and conditions worked in our favor.”
