The Moroccan Agency for the Development of Logistics actively participated in the International Transportation and Logistics Week, which was organized in the Paris-Villepinte-based Parc des Expositions, on March 22-25, 2016.
Mr. Younes TAZI, General Manager of The Moroccan Agency for the Development of Logistics and Mr. Rachid TAHIRI, President of the Freight-forwarders’ Association in Morocco, gave a conference during the event to develop the following theme: “Morocco: Your Next Step towards Growth … Your Best Logistical Gateway to Africa,” in the presence of Mr. Mohamed Najib BOULIF, Delegate Minister to the Minister of Equipment, Transportation and Logistics, in charge of Transportation.
During this conference, Mr. TAHRI underlined the fact that Morocco has clear visibility concerning the economic sphere, thanks to the different sector-based strategies that are being implemented by the Kingdom in several areas of activities. He added that the development of infrastructures and the open-trade policy, as seen in the array of Free Trade Agreements that Morocco has already concluded have strongly contributed to the attraction of significant FDI inflows.
Moreover, Mr. TAZI pointed to the various projects that are currently underway which purport to develop the country’s logical competitiveness. The aim is to foster investments and to modernize the logistical sector, which has witnessed tangible evolution over the last five years.
He underlined that the calling of Morocco as a logistical hub for Africa is confirmed day after day, thanks to the decision taken by many world-class operators to set up their logistical bases in Morocco.
Mr. Tazi concluded his intervention by inviting the operators who have taken part in SITL to invest in the logistical sector in Morocco.
The Moroccan Agency for the Development of Logistics also took part in the Moroccan pavilion which had been set up on the occasion of the Fair. It should be noted that the Fair constitutes an important get-together for the professionals of the Transportation and Logistics sector at the European and global scale.
