In a 2003 speech, Moroccan King
Mohammed VI laid out a bold
plan to revolutionise the economy.
His vision for “one of the greatest economic
projects” in Morocco’s history
aimed to capitalise on its geostrategic
position through the creation of a
world-leading port and industrial platform.
Almost two decades later, that vision has
paid dividends. Tanger Med port and surrounding
network of six activity zones – which
include free zones as well as other type of zones
(industrial, logistics, services) – has garnered
$10.1bn worth of public and private investment,
according to figures from Tanger Med
Special Agency (TMSA), the public authority
established in 2003 to oversee the King’s vision
for integrated regional development.
