"The region of the South benefits from ambitious investment programs, both public and private, and major infrastructure projects that make it the ideal hub to the African continent," Klein said at the opening of the Morocco-France business Forum, held on November 2-4 in Laayoune under the patronage of HM King Mohammed VI.

CFCIM chairman noted in this regard that the region of Laayoune-Sakia El Hamra offers investors incentives and many competitive advantages, particularly in the sector of real estate, or access to a pool of qualified human resources.

"If we have chosen Laayoune to host, after Casablanca and Paris, this third edition of the Morocco-France business Forum, it is because we are convinced of the potential of the southern region, whose growth rate is one of the most dynamic in the Kingdom," he stressed, calling on Moroccan and French economic operators to promote and seize these great opportunities.

He also announced that CFCIM is committed to the implementation of two major projects, namely a latest-generation industrial park with a land base of 40 hectares, which will be located in the city of El Marsa (25 km from Laayoune), and a campus that will host, inter alia, the French School of business.

Organized by the ministry of Industry, Investment, Trade and Digital Economy, the Laayoune Sakia-El Hamra Region and the CFCIM, the Morocco-France business Forum aims to create an efficient, dynamic and content-rich meeting space between Moroccan and French economic operators.

It is also meant to develop the potential of the Laayoune Sakia-El Hamra region as an entry point and hub to Africa and to present the investment opportunities it offers to investors in order to help them optimize their development in the region.
