Morocco is determined to boost its industrial sector. To this end, two partnership agreements were signed last week in Rabat as part of the 23rd edition of the National Quality Week. This event, held under the theme "A national quality policy at the service of competitiveness", was organised by the Moroccan Ministry of Industry and Trade.  

The main objective of this annual meeting is to defend a culture of quality and excellence, as reported in Morocco World News. A key point of this year's event was the presentation of the draft National Quality Policy, drawn up by five commissions from the Higher Council for Standardisation and Certification (CSNCA).

The initial agreement signed during the event aims to establish a high-level ecosystem for automotive quality professionals. This treaty was formalised by Taoufiq Moucharraf, secretary general of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, and Hakim Abdelmoumen, president of the Moroccan Association of Automotive Industry and Construction (AMICA).

The automotive sector has great potential in Morocco. For years, the Kingdom has been consolidating its position as a regional benchmark in this field. As the latest data show, annual vehicle production has doubled from 403,007 in 2021 to more than 400,000 in the first six months of 2023.  

On the other hand, the second pact is focused on fostering a quality ecosystem in the chemical and petrochemical sectors. This important agreement was signed by Minister Moucharraf and Abed Chagar, president of the Federation of Chemical and Petrochemical (FCP).

Both the chemical and petrochemical sectors have experienced a 74% increase in production in Morocco. However, both industries need a boost, as sales have declined, both on the local and international markets.  

As Morocco World News reports, these ambitions to build quality ecosystems are strategically designed to strengthen the national industry's quality benchmarks, thus encompassing both manufactured products and managerial aspects, as well as skills and human resources development.

The overall objective of both agreements is to position Morocco as a centre of excellence in both sectors, making professionals more competitive and able to meet the changing demands of increasingly demanding customers. 

As the Kingdom moves towards becoming an industrial hub characterised by quality, these two agreements aim to foster a culture of excellence and innovation, poised to propel the nation to improve its competitiveness, both regionally and internationally.
