Economic mission in Morocco
Morocco, your Euro-African hub
Regardless of your business sector, you want to export to Morocco! It’s good timing: from 14 to 18 October, we are organising, together with AWEX, a multi-sector mission in Casablanca, Rabat and Tangier.
Morocco today is a real gateway to the African continent: a market of more than a billion African consumers. The reforms introduced in Morocco over recent years have paid dividends; according to the World Bank’s Doing Business report, in 2019 Morocco ranked highly amongst the most attractive countries for conducting business.
A policy of development for high potential sectors, a stimulating environment, financial incentives, the creation of off-shore zones… all designed to make Morocco the ideal economic partner.
Three cities, three different vibes
Casablanca, the economic capital and commercial heart of the country…
Rabat, the administrative and political capital…
Tangier, the gateway city about to succeed with its industrial transition…
Join us in these three growing cities and take advantage of our logistical support, a tailor-made B2B meeting programme and numerous networking events. Note that in Casablanca you will have access to our representative and their team to perfect your knowledge of the local market.
For businesses in the Tourism / Hospitality industry, a dedicated event will be organised on Wednesday 16 October, in Rabat, to meet the Moroccan decision-makers in this sector.
A gala dinner, ‘A Belgian Chef in Tangier,’ by chef Alex Joseph (Rouge Tomate) will be the icing on the cake and will close the mission in style.
Interested? Sign up via this form before 14 September !
