The energy, infrastructure and automotive sectors are currently the most promising sectors for business start-ups in Morocco.
With the steady rise in Morocco’s energy requirements comes growing pressure to generate energy from local sources rather than pay high prices to import it from other countries. The Moroccan Government has set the ambitious goal of meeting 42% of the country’s energy needs from renewable sources by 2020. Here, too, Morocco is playing a pioneering role in Africa. Demand for German technological expertise is correspondingly high, and in turn this creates business opportunities for specialists such as technology consultants, plant engineers and project managers. In the automotive and automotive supplies industry, too, experienced engineers with good technical knowledge and a sound business idea stand a good chance of being able to set up a successful business.
