    Morocco to Develop its Ports for Tourism Purposes

    Coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic, Morocco plans to make the country more appealing to tourists.

    16 May 2022

    Rabat - In an effort to revitalize tourism following the COVID-19 pandemic, Morocco is now looking to upgrade its ports and port cities for tourism purposes.

    A partnership agreement was signed between the International Association of Port Cities (AIVP), the National Agency of Ports (ANP), and the Moroccan Society of Tourism Engineering (SMIT) on the heels of the AIVP’s 17th World Conference Cities & Ports.

    Specifically, the agreement focuses on the development of yachting tourism in the port cities, to make the destinations more appealing and visible to visitors all year round.

    In addition, the parties want to better integrate the environments surrounding the ports and their cities, in a way that complements investment opportunities.

    SMIT mentioned that the Moroccan coast has several marinas with fully developed and fairly modern infrastructure, which makes it easier to invest to upgrade them to internationally competitive standards.

    The move comes as Morocco aims to elevate its tourism industry, as the country and the world emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic and its debilitating effects.

    More lenient travel restrictions and a growing desire to travel are poised to benefit Morocco’s tourism sector in 2022.

    Morocco’s Minister of Tourism Fatima-Zahra Ammor announced earlier this year the relaunch of a plan to revive and support the tourism sector, and prepare for a potential influx of visitors.
