Specialty / integrated electronics have experienced sustained growth in recent years with growing opportunities in the field of outsourcing (high value-added products, better integrated subcontractors, electronics in the automotive, aerospace, renewable energies and defense).

The Moroccan electronics industry also drains an important offshorable part of the electronics of Western Europe. This situation encourages the emergence of new sectors with high added value such as lighting and energy efficiency, electrical components, safety equipment and renewable energies.

The Moroccan electronics industry benefits from a skilled, abundant and cheap labor force. The sector is now oriented towards card assembly, cabling, electronic component manufacturing and integrated circuit assembly, particularly for the automotive and aeronautics (embedded electronics) sectors.

To further increase its positioning in electronics, Morocco has decided to support this sector as a priority by setting up an offer focused on the development of specialty electronics, enabling the country to become a leader in the field of electronics. a production and export platform to Europe.

The Moroccan aviation industry is the perfect example of Morocco’s strong desire to industrialize the country as part of the creation of ecosystems with very high added value, designed according to an integrated global vision, and thus to create industrial flagships. successful and flourishing internationally renowned:

  • Job creation
  • Technology transfer
  • Long-term supply contracts
  • Establishment of universities and training centers
  • Exchanges of experiences and feedback in the scientific field
  • International marketing and in particular access to the African market

Of the 97 hectares allocated to the ecosystems of the aeronautical sector, 63 hectares are located in Nouaceur, near Casablanca, where have already settled some of the largest operators in the world, such as Bombardier, EADS, Boeing, Safran, Lisi Aerospace, The French Piston , Daher, Souriau, Ratier Figeac, Eaton, Alcoa and Aerolia.

The development of diversified sectors of the aerospace industry (wiring, mechanics, boilermaking, composite, mechanical assembly) positions Morocco as a preferred destination for aeronautical subcontracting and confirms the Kingdom’s ability to attract leaders in this field. As a result, this industry now generates more than 11,000 jobs and $ 1 billion in sales.

The aerospace sector has grown sixfold in 10 years and now has 121 players, placing the Kingdom at the 15th rank in terms of aviation investment, which has allowed Morocco to join the very closed circle of countries operating in this sector.

This upturn began with the launch of the 2014-2020 Industrial Acceleration Plan (IPA) in April 2014, and was reinforced in July 2015 with the signing of performance contracts by the Ministry of Industry. , Commerce, Investment and the Digital Economy and the profession, to support the deployment of four structured ecosystems in the assembly, electrical-wiring and harness systems (EWIS), maintenance-repair, overhaul (MRO) and engineering.

These four ecosystems are expected to create 23,000 new jobs by 2020, triple the current workforce, double the export turnover to $ 1.6 billion achieve a local integration rate of 35%, attract more than 100 new players and the emergence of new businesses with high added value and high technological content.

To this end, an integrated and innovative support system is set up for the benefit of aeronautical ecosystems companies, as well as financial support in the form of subsidies to the sector’s “locomotives” and bonuses for first investments in the pioneer trades defined. by an ecosystem.

Similarly, this support is reflected in a training offer aimed at qualifying target profiles with the granting of direct grants of up to 6,000 euros / person, and by an offer of rental property at attractive prices.

Although Morocco is home to the Al Quaraouiyine University of Fez (859), the oldest in the world (UNESCO), followed by the Egyptian Al-Azhar of Cairo (988), the Italian of Bologna (1088), Oxford (1167), Modena Italian (1175), Paris (1200), Cambridge (1209), Salamanca (1218) and a budget of more than 4 billion euros, about 6% of Moroccan GDP, the Moroccan public education system based on free education is currently in crisis.

The system of education organized by the French under their Protectorate from 1912 to 1959 was powerful but very elitist.

Throughout the past two decades, Morocco has embarked on a series of reforms of its education system and has made unquestionable progress. “We can mention, in particular, the updating of the legal and institutional framework, the progress made in the generalization of schooling, the establishment of institutional structures of decentralized governance, with the development of regional academies and a relative autonomy universities. Curricula and curricula reviews, the pedagogical restructuring of higher education, the integration of Amazigh language and culture education, the reorganization of sectors and the gradual expansion of welcome vocational training, as well as the project of rehabilitation of traditional education. “(Summary of the strategic vision of the 2015-2030 reform, drawn up by the Higher Council for Education, Training and Scientific Research). However, many failures persist: “establishments and equipment in a bad state, overcrowded classes (sometimes 70 students per class), absent and untrained teachers, violence, dropping out of school, teaching languages, …. ”

As a result, the achievements of students in public and private schools are low and 75% of students are older than the normal age of their schooling.

The level in classical Arabic is far from the target of the average of 11 points / 20 and the level in French reaches only 23% of the national target and finally, 84% of scientific students had a score of below average in mathematics.

The CSEFRS 2015-2030 strategic vision is supposed to remedy these shortcomings, but in the meantime, many Moroccans are turning to foreign schools, a booming market, despite the sometimes exorbitant tuition fees and quality not always at the meeting. -you.

In the big cities 70% to 80% of the students are privately educated.

After the French mission, the densest, the expanding Spanish mission, the American mission, fashionable, Belgium wants to make the Kingdom the first stop of its new policy of cultural expansion in Africa.

For more than a decade, the Moroccan State has been encouraging the arrival of private school groups, particularly through tax incentives. In the Education and Teaching Charter of 2008, the government, supported by organizations such as the African Development Bank (AfDB), set itself the goal of achieving 25% of private schooling in the world. 2024 horizon, all ages.

Driven by the modernization of infrastructure and the growth of domestic demand, the health market is growing at a steady pace. The development potential of the sector has been confirmed, since the annual amount of the budget devoted to health has steadily increased in recent years: EUR 1.08 billion in 2012, EUR 1.12 billion in 2013 and EUR 1.3 billion in 2014. This sector still shows a chronic deficiency in practitioners and medical infrastructure: 152 health centers were forced to close in 2014 due to lack of staff.

Morocco has 141 hospitals, 400 private clinics, 2,600 health centers and clinics. The four CHU (University Hospital Center) of the country (Casablanca, Rabat, Fez, Marrakesh) recorded, at the end of 2013, 35% of national hospitalizations (1.6 million days of hospitalization) and performed 35% of the surgical interventions.

Large disparities exist between the equipment of public hospitals and private clinics, depending on geographical areas. There is 1 hospital bed per 1 000 inhabitants, 1 doctor per 12 000 inhabitants, 1 health center per 10 000 inhabitants and 1 nurse per 1 000 inhabitants. In addition, 54% of the direct expenditure of households concerns the health sector with, in particular, 400 DH (36.73 EUR) spent per year and per capita on medicines.

Nearly 90% of medical equipment is imported, mainly from Europe. Demand comes from 85% of the public sector (purchase of new equipment) and 15% from the private sector (purchase of used equipment).

CHU activity is expected to grow strongly in the coming years with the four UHCs being implemented as part of the implementation of health facility strengthening. Two university hospitals will be located in Tangier, one in Agadir and another in Oujda.

In addition, with around 250 listed distributors (although only 40 players dominate the market), the country is positioning itself as a re-export center to West Africa. Gradually, the vocation of Morocco to become a regional hub is confirmed.

For fifteen years, the Moroccan authorities have taken positive initiatives in the health sector in Morocco, in sharp transformation, as evidenced by the steady increase in the budget allocated to it:

  • improving the social protection of poor or vulnerable populations with the introduction of a Compulsory Health Insurance (AMO) and an Assistance Plan for the economically disadvantaged (RAMED);
  • the creation of new infrastructures such as Tangier, Agadir and Oujda university hospitals;
  • the implementation of priority health care programs (vaccination, control of classical infectious diseases, family planning, detection of cancerous diseases, etc.);
  • lower prices for several drugs, including those used in the treatment of cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol, epilepsy and hepatitis C.

However, major problems of equity and accessibility to care and services remain:

  • insufficient current infrastructure (1 health center per 10,000 inhabitants): 150 hospitals including only four hospitals (Casablanca, Rabat, Fez, Marrakech) which account for about 40% of hospitalizations and surgical procedures, 400 private clinics, 2,600 health centers and dispensaries. The four university hospitals in the country (Casablanca, Rabat, Fez, Marrakech);
  • lack of practitioners and health staff (1 doctor per 12 000 inhabitants and 1 nurse per 1 000 inhabitants);
  • working conditions of doctors;
  • lack of qualified personnel;
  • lack of equipment especially in the public health sector (1 hospital bed per 1,000 inhabitants);
  • lack of medical equipment (neonatology for example): 90% of medical equipment is imported 85% for the public sector (purchase of new equipment) and 15% for the private sector (purchase of used equipment);
  • lack of drugs: insulin, …
  • the insufficiency of hospital capacity: see, for example, the maternal and infant mortality rate in Morocco due to lack of assistance from various maternity services, etc.

The situation is even more critical depending on the time slot of need for care, urgency and geographical areas.

In addition, the demand for care is expected to increase due to:

  • the aging of the Moroccan population;
  • the increase in the mortality rate attributed to noncommunicable diseases;
  • poor hygiene (20% of Moroccan adults are obese and 32% are overweight);
  • lack of culture of practice of a regular sporting activity
  • and the massive use of tobacco.

The role of actors and private investors in the health sector in Morocco are welcome in particular in the following areas:

  • Creation, modernization and management of health centers
  • Professional Training of Practitioners and Health Personnel
  • Export of equipment and medical equipment for Morocco and other African countries
  • Creation of new pharmaceutical laboratories (new technologies and innovative biopharmaceutical industry), cosmetics and veterinary
  • To stimulate by the private actors and supported by numerous incentives of the Moroccan authorities (field, subsidy up to 30% of the total amount of the investment) to manufacture or invest in Morocco in structuring projects, the Health and Well-being sector in Morocco is part of a positive and optimistic vision

The agricultural sector in Morocco and its immense proportions

The agricultural sector in Morocco generates 14% of GDP and remains the country’s largest employer of jobs (40% of the population).

The agricultural area of ​​Morocco is estimated at 8,700,000 hectares (12.25% of the total area of ​​the country).

The main vegetable productions of the country consist of cereals (wheat, barley), citrus fruits (oranges, clementines), olives, fruit rosaceae (almonds, apples, apricots, …), sugar beets, food legumes, vegetable crops, including potatoes and tomatoes. Livestock (sheep, goats, cattle, camels, poultry) is also an important component of the agricultural sector.

The Moroccan government launched in April 2008: “Green Morocco Plan” (PMV). The goal: to put agriculture back to the top of the country’s priorities for the next ten years, capable of being a powerful engine to fight poverty and maintain a large population in rural areas.

Subsidies policy: up to 100% for irrigation projects, 20 to 60% for farm equipment (plant and animal sector) and flat-rate subsidies per hectare for aggregation projects (from MAD 250 to MAD 5,000 / ha).

Investment policy: 10 billion Dirhams annually for the benefit of the agricultural sector by 2020.

Two differentiated intervention approaches are selected for the implementation of Green Morocco Plan projects:

  • The Pillar I projects, which are based on private investment and targeting areas with high agricultural potential, aim at developing modern agriculture with high productivity or high value-added. These projects provide an investment of 70 billion dirhams for the benefit of nearly 560,000 target farmers.
  • The Pillar II projects, which are based on direct state intervention, aim to revive traditional or solidarity farming in disadvantaged regions. 20 billion dirhams of investments are planned by 2020 for the benefit of 840,000 beneficiary farmers.

In this way, the agricultural sector offers important investment opportunities to economic operators at all levels of the value chain, namely, production, valorization, marketing and export through logistics and processing and marketing. valorization of agro-industry by-products.

Morocco offers opportunities for investment in the agricultural sector, particularly in the following areas:

  • Renting agricultural land under the Public Private Partnership
  • Taking equity participation in the companies concerned by the Public Private Partnership
  • Support for recovery units set up as part of Pillar II projects

These opportunities are supported by the establishment of a favorable environment for investment in the agricultural sector through:

  • Financial incentives granted under the Agricultural Development Fund
  • The establishment of an agricultural insurance system
  • Support for financial institutions
  • The establishment of a legal framework for agricultural aggregation
  • The establishment of agropoles
  • Facilitating access of agricultural products to the international market

Morocco’s leading export position (ahead of the agricultural sector and phosphate), Morocco has become the leading car manufacturer in North Africa and the second largest in the continent after South Africa.

The Moroccan automotive sector is the most successful Moroccan industrial policy in terms of ecosystems (Emergence Plan and Industrial Acceleration Plan 2014-2020).

In addition to RENAULT in 2012, many OEMs have established themselves mainly in Tangiers, but also in Casablanca and Kenitra (PSA), and Morocco is now targeting the establishment of another major manufacturer in the coming years.

The challenge for the automotive sector in Morocco is to capitalize on the status of LCC (Low Cost Country) producer to move to the top rank of MCC (Most Competitive Country) in the global automotive subcontracting market.

In June 2014, the Moroccan State, in partnership with AMICA (Moroccan Association for Automotive Industry and Trade), launched 5 automobile ecosystems for a global target of MAD 24 billion in turnover ( EUR 2.2 billion), 90 000 jobs created and a local integration rate of 65%.

Public aid takes the form of grants that can exceed 30% of the investment amount, a premium for local integration, development of the rental property formula, training aids up to 65 000 Drh / person (approximately EUR 6,000).

Morocco now wants to promote the establishment of tier 2 and 3 equipment manufacturers to help rank 1 to be more competitive.

The potential of the Moroccan domestic market is promising if we compare Morocco (65 cars per 1,000 inhabitants) with other countries in the region such as Tunisia (122), Algeria (140) and South Africa ( 200).
