Why Morocco?

Morocco is one of Africa’s most sophisticated and developed countries.

Its competitive costs and world-class infrastructure make it a business environment conducive to business development, hence its reputation as a Best Cost country.

The government has established a wide range of incentives to benefit foreign companies:

  • An incentivizing tax system that offers tax exemptions or reduced tax rates;
  • Direct subsidy programs;
  • Provision of the required technical training;
  • Adoption of new laws to improve investment terms.

Moreover, the mandate of the Morocco’s Investment and Trade Agency is to implement the government's strategy for developing, incentivizing and promoting national and foreign investments as well as exports of products and services. It is intended to support all economic players throughout their life cycle.
