    Morocco’s 4th Technopark to Open in Agadir in 2019-Morocco

    10 Oct 2018

    Rabat – Agadir will be the fourth Moroccan city to have a technopark, after Casablanca, Rabat, and Tangier, and will receive 80 companies.

    the technoparks managing company in Morocco, unveiled the 2020 roadmap for Agadir. The city lies on Morocco’s southern Atlantic coast in the Souss Massa region.

    “For the first axis of regionalization, in the course of 2019, we will open the fourth technopark in Agadir to support entrepreneurship and innovation in the southern region, in line with the 2014-2020 industrial acceleration plan in the Souss-Massa region,” said Lamiae Benmakhlouf, MITC’s general manager in a statement.

    The project is a result of a partnership between the Ministry of Industry, Investment, Commerce, and Digital Economy; Souss Massa’s Regional Council; and the Chamber of Commerce, Industry, and Services of the region.

    The Agadir Technopark will be located in a 10,000 square meter area in the Tilila neighborhood.

    The project’s total budget is estimated at MAD 30 million. Souss Massa’s Regional Council is contributing MAD 15 million, according to LesEco.

    The new technopark will have the same services as the other technoparks in Morocco with the involvement of the regional ecosystem, Benmakhlouf noted.

    The project is a result of a partnership between the Ministry of Industry, Investment, Commerce, and Digital Economy; Souss Massa’s Regional Council; and the Chamber of Commerce, Industry, and Services of the region.

    The technoparks ecosystem in Morocco will host more than 320 companies operating in the digital sector, including more than 200 companies only in Casablanca Technopark.

    “Every year, more than 70 new companies join our various sites, representing an annual turnover of 25 percent, which reinforces the sustained strategy of renewing our hubs and boosts our regionalization policy outside the Casablanca-Tangier axis,” Benmakhlouf told Media24.

    She added, “The success rate of our startups is 83 percent, thanks to the quality support provided by our partners, but also thanks to the proximity services offered by the technopark.”

    She continued, “Since the opening of the first technopark in Casablanca in 2001, we have hosted more than 1,000 technology startups with several success stories.”
