Investment Landscape

With a long history of growth and stability supported through a steady pace of economic reform and market liberalization, Morocco is an attractive environment for business and investment. Morocco is also widely known as a “Gateway to Africa” for global companies looking to gain market share across a continent with high demand in growing sectors such as automotive and aerospace manufacturing. Morocco also has great potential for investment in key emerging sectors such as renewable energy and information and communications technology (ICT) and innovation in mining, agriculture, and tourism. To establish and expand business operations, Morocco offers attractive investment incentives, robust business, communications and logistics infrastructure, free trade zones, and a tech savvy workforce. These advantages, a multitude of free trade agreements, and Morocco’s strategic location can be easily leveraged to access billions of consumers around the world.

USAID’s Role

For over 60 years, the United States has been a trusted partner to Morocco, supporting its amazing story of development and economic growth. USAID/Morocco is essential to this long-standing partnership and collaborates with a wide range of companies and investors to achieve the mutual objective of sustained prosperity and growth.

Across nearly every sector and industry, USAID works with large multinational corporations, local Moroccan businesses, business associations, utility companies, technology firms, and investors. A strong on-the-ground presence, deep expertise, and close relationships with Moroccan ministries allows USAID to support businesses as they expand their operations and investments. This includes initiatives to 1) modernize their workforce, 2) foster innovation and entrepreneurship to improve productivity, and 3) enhance the resilience of their supply chains.
