From February 2006, he was managing director of the Maison de l’Artisan. From 1982 to 2006, he was a professor of higher education at the Faculty of Law and Economic Sciences at the University Hassan II in Casablanca. He is an associate professor in the upper management of ISCAE. Between 2007 and 2012 he was Minister of External Trade.
Morocco’s economy is considered relatively liberal and has been following a trend of privatization since about 1993. Morocco is geographically located with strategic advantage. The Strait of Gibraltar borders Morocco and Morocco controls part of it which gives it some power over the inflows and outflows of vessels over the waterways of the Mediterranean sea. Morocco’s major resources include agriculture, phosphates, and tourism. Morocco is the third largest producer of phosphorous after China (1st) and the U.S. (2nd) but is the world’s largest exporter of phosphorous. Morocco’s major exports are foods of all kinds including meats, fruits, and nuts. The World Bank forecasts a growth rate of 4% for 2012 and 4.2% for 2013.
This event will also provide you with the opportunity to network with Entrepreneurs and investors in Morocco and beyond. This is a wonderful opportunity to stay informed about investement opportunities in the emerging market Morocco and meet other entrepreneurs. A new network of Dutch-Moroccan Investors will be launched the same evening.
