The Japanese group Yazaki has officially resolved to leave Tunisia for Morocco.
Yazaki Coroporation has decided to transfer two projects that were to see the light of day in Gabès and Cap Bon, with 5,000 jobs in Morocco.
The political situation and the lack of visibility made the Japanese company head for the Kingdom, despite the attempts of several parties, including the Secretary General of the UGTT so that these two projects are implanted in Tunisia.
As a reminder, last year, the Japanese group Yazaki, which already has three subsidiaries in Morocco (Yazaki Kenitra, Yazaki Maroc Tanger and Yazaki Morocco Meknès), announced plans to install a fourth factory in Kenitra.
