Marrakech, a city at the forefront of sustainability

Driven by the unrelenting will of the King of Morocco, with a target to generate 52% of energy from renewable sources by 2030, Marrakech offers investors the opportunity to put a little “green” in their portfolios and decarbonize the world’s industries.

The event was also an opportunity to explore the cultural richness and diversity of Marrakech, which actively encourages and facilitates foreign investments in multiple sectors, such as the agribusiness, tourism, creative industries, renewable energy, logistics, offshoring, and ICT.

These investment opportunities were made possible thanks to multiple reforms and facilitation mechanisms, which offer several incentives to stimulate investment (up to 30% of the total investment amount), improve the business climate and the competitiveness of the private sector.

More than 50 non-double taxation agreements, the absence of restrictions in the percentage of share capital and the free repatriation of funds are also influential factors that enable the region to offer a particularly modern and attractive legal and fiscal environment.

As part of the Marrakech Investor Day’s events, international investors were given a first-hand demonstration of these advantages that promote ease of doing investments in Marrakech and enhance transparency, such as the dematerialization of customs procedures and the personalized support of the Marrakech-Safi Regional Center for Investment.

The event also featured a panel discussion on the data-related investment opportunities, followed by the Marrakech Investor Awards ceremony, designed to celebrate the regions’ key investors.
