The Industrial Technical Centers (CTI) constitute the backbone of the supervision and support of national industrial development, said Tuesday in Casablanca, the Minister of Industry and Trade, Ryad Mezzour.

Speaking on the occasion of the signing of a framework agreement between the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Network of Moroccan Industrial Technical Centers (RECTIM) and the CTIs for the implementation of the CTI 2022 development plan -2025, Ryad Mezzoura underlined the expertise of these centers which contribute to protecting the Moroccan market thanks to the quality control carried out on imported products.

He also recalled their support to industrialists, including small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), in carrying out their trials, tests and certifications to enable Moroccan products to meet international standards and to be marketed not only at the national level. but also in international markets.

CTIs are essential in supporting research and development (R&D) at the industrial level in Morocco, which is currently experiencing great growth and which is at the heart of our country’s development strategy, said Mr. Mezzour, noting among the 400,000 jobs planned in the government program dedicated to industry, 100,000 will be directly linked to R&D.

In addition, Ryad Mezzour noted the changes that have marked the Moroccan industrial ecosystem, which are illustrated by the transition from an industry qualified as “low cost”, to the current stage of “best cost” to initiate a transition towards a market of “best value” which combines both quality and cost, adding that Morocco is today an industrial platform of world level in terms of quality and competitiveness.

For his part, the president of RECTIM, David Toledano, welcomed this signature once again concretizes the special relationship between the public and private sectors, which has been woven for more than 25 years, noting the success of the first convention signed in 2013 which allowed, through an investment of 360 MDH, the strengthening of the technological, normative and qualitative development of national industrial production.

David Toledano also underlined the action of the CTIs in favor of Morocco’s industrial sovereignty, which has become the leitmotif of many countries since the outbreak of the health crisis, expressing the predisposition of industrialists to forcefully defend this national independence by reconstruction of local ecosystems and consolidation of the national strategy.

This new development plan, with a budget of 250 MDH, inaugurates a new partnership framework between the State and the CTIs through which the ministry will further support the role of these centers in the technical and technological support of companies.

The objective is to position them as an accelerator of innovation and industrial R&D, in particular by developing services with high added value for the benefit of the various industrial sectors aimed at strengthening their competitiveness and the industrial sovereignty of the Kingdom. .
