One of the world’s giants of computer systems (IT) will open an outsourcing center in Morocco on Tuesday. This was announced by the Minister of Digital Transition and Administrative Reform, Ghita Mezzour.
The minister, who was speaking at the House of Representatives, said that the Indian group chose to invest in Morocco because of the support provided by the government, the infrastructure in place and highly qualified young Moroccans. The ultimate goal is to develop the latest technologies in the fields of digital, artificial intelligence and software, she said.
This investment is in addition to other ongoing projects, with a total budget of more than one billion DH in several regions of Morocco, including Souss-Massa, Casablanca-Settat, Rabat-Salé-Kénitra, Tangier-Tétouan-Al Hoceima and Fès-Meknes.
The manager pointed out that today, Morocco is one of the three major destinations in Africa in the IT field. International companies have created more than 18,500 direct job opportunities in the field of artificial intelligence and digitization.
Ghita Mezzour announced that a programming school will open in Nador in September, another step in the perspective of encouraging and training young Moroccan talents in the IT sector.
The official also stressed that Morocco is moving towards a digitized future, by creating platforms to help young Moroccan investors. For example, the Startup Maroc platform, which is a startup accelerator labeled by the Caisse Centrale de Garantie as part of the Innov Invest Fund, whose mission is to actively contribute to the emergence of high-potential entrepreneurs and startups who are able to shape Morocco, Africa and the world.
More than 100 activities organized, thousands of young people introduced to entrepreneurship, many ecosystems impacted across Morocco and many startups identified, financed and supported which have succeeded in developing their markets and raising funds, recalled the minister, who also confirmed that the Kingdom offers a quality administrative service, in the sense that 55.5% of Moroccans noted an improvement in the quality of administrative services.
