  2. Visit to Apple Park 

Morocco's Minister of Investment, Convergence and Public Policy Evaluation, Mohcine Jazouli, visited Boeing's Everett facility and Apple Park in San Francisco on a tour of the United States. 

Improving supply and increasing investment were the objectives set by the Moroccan delegation, which visited the Apple Park facilities in San Francisco and ended its visit at the Boeing facilities in Everett, the largest roofed factory in the world.

Considered one of the most attractive countries for foreign investment, Morocco has developed a strong aeronautical supply chain, with more than 140 companies employing approximately 20,000 people, including Airbus and Boeing, according to the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization).

Visit to Boeing facilities 

Mohcine Jazouli and a high-level Moroccan delegation visited Boeing's Everett facility in northwest Morocco, known as the world's largest indoor facility.  

Iconic aircraft, such as the Boeing 777, are assembled in this magnificent complex, which covers almost 400,000 square metres. The delegation was able to see first-hand the advanced technology and innovative processes used in the manufacture of these aircraft, underscoring the synergy between Morocco's vision for growth and Boeing's commitment to innovation. 

The visit, beyond knowledge sharing, laid the groundwork for future aerospace collaborations. The Everett factory, with one of the last three assembly lines for the 747 and 777, is a testament to Boeing's industrial capability and leadership position in the global aerospace market. Morocco, with its leadership and investment-friendly climate, is positioned as a strategic hub for the aerospace industry in Africa.

Rabat has developed a solid airport infrastructure that supports its growth in the aviation sector. Mohamed V International Airport in Casablanca is the country's largest airport and an important hub for international flights, especially to Europe, North America and the rest of Africa. Other major airports include Menara International Airport in Marrakech and Agadir-Al Massira International Airport, both essential for tourism and trade. 

In addition, Royal Air Maroc (RAM), Morocco's national airline, plays a crucial role in connecting the country to the rest of the world. The airline operates a modern fleet and has significantly expanded its route network in recent years. With hubs in Casablanca and other key airports, RAM facilitates not only tourism, but also trade and investment, contributing to the country's economic development.

Visit to Apple Park 

Mohcine Jazouli hosted an important meeting in Silicon Valley, south of San Francisco, where more than 150 Moroccan professionals working in technology, biotechnology, entrepreneurship and education gathered to discuss Morocco's ambitious development efforts, with a particular focus on large-scale projects and future initiatives, especially within the scope of the technology and green energy sectors.

The meeting focused on high-tech and high-value projects to enhance Morocco's technological sovereignty and contribute to the development of the African continent.

The delegation's commitment to innovation and technology reflects Morocco's vision to establish itself as a leader in the technology sector. The discussions underline the importance of international collaboration to boost the digital economy. The visit to technology companies such as Apple symbolises a significant step towards realising this goal. 

Morocco, with its conducive investment climate and leadership, seeks to become a technology hub in the region. The country's strategic location as a gateway to Africa and its rapidly growing market make it an attractive partner for technology investments. The policy of fostering a favourable environment for investment and innovation ensures investors a thriving space for the development of technology projects.

The interest of US technology companies in Morocco is not accidental. The country's strategic position and its commitment to innovation and sustainable development make it an ideal partner for collaborations in the technology sector. The meetings in San Francisco highlighted how it can benefit from these partnerships, not only to improve its own economy, but also to play a key role in Africa's economic growth. 

The tour reflects the country's strategic vision to position itself as a leader in key sectors, promoting sustainable growth and international collaboration. With high-quality infrastructure and investment-friendly policies, Morocco stands out as a growing economy in the region, ready to seize new opportunities and strengthen its position in global markets.
