Automotive: Morocco wants to dethrone India and China

Morocco’s ambition for the coming years is to become the world leader in automotive competitiveness. To meet this challenge, the kingdom will have to rely on a “carbon-free” industry.

The Moroccan automotive sector is enjoying years of glory to the point that it has become more competitive than European countries and all other countries in the world except China and India. Morocco is now aiming for first place, aspiring to be the most competitive country in the world in the automotive sector. The Ministry of Industry, Trade, Investment and Digital Economy is giving itself the means to achieve this.

With manufacturers Renault and PSA and 250 equipment manufacturers, including 22 of French origin, the kingdom has major assets. “These equipment manufacturers export from Morocco to 74 countries including France, Spain, Germany, Great Britain, the USA, Mexico, South Korea on behalf of Renault, PSA, Volkswagen, Daimler, Ford, GM, Jaguar Land Rover… “, indicated the Minister of Industry, Trade, Investment and the Digital Economy, Moulay Hafid Elalamy. As an example, he cites Faurecia. Present in Morocco since 2008, the French group exports 60% of its production to France.
