Africa is a strategic imperative. Some African countries are experiencing clear economic dynamism and seem destined to become the drivers of the development of the African continent to form the front runners of the African lions for the development of the continent.
Morocco, strong in its African identity, conceals many energies and potentialities that allow it to create favourable conditions of impetus and development for the African continent.
It has the assets to play “a role of locomotive for a harmonious co-emergence of continent” and become a future industrial Hub of integration towards structural changes in disseminating integrated and complementary investment opportunities between Africa and the rest of the world.
The Kingdom of Morocco has bold ambitions for itself, and therefore for Africa, and is one of the driving forces, in the dynamics of the collective spirit, to take up the challenges for the prosperity of the African continent.
Morocco can be the initiator of African development for economic recovery and give hope to all the countries of Africa.
