Tangier: The backbone of economic development in the Kingdom of Morocco
Industrial projects are numerous on the African continent. In Tangier where our subsidiary Phéniciafrica counts many clients, the dynamism of young Moroccan entrepreneurs investing in all sectors is remarkable and an example for the African continent.

The spearhead of this economic development is constituted by the free zones of Tangier Med whose enterprises are exempt from VAT.
These zones are home to more than 750 Moroccan and foreign export enterprises with a total turnover of more than 5.5 billion euros and generating some 65,000 jobs, which has enabled Morocco to move into new promising sectors such as the automotive, aeronautical and clean energy industries.
