Foreign Direct Investment / Fruit of a long process of reforms

The reforms enterprises in Morocco, and the prospects of growth in terms of global relocations abroad causing a new international division of labour, should allow in Morocco an acceleration of its attractiveness for the IDE.
 

 

The improvement of the attractiveness of Morocco for foreign direct investment is the result of a reform process initiated by the government that concerns the sanitation of the macro-economic framework, improving the business climate and investment, boosting the financial sector, modernizing the administration and the privatization of some public enterprises.
