Morocco’s state-owned railway operating company (ONCF) posted a net profit of 223 million Dirhams in 2016, up 31% compared to 2015.

The company said in a statement that its turnover over the same period reached 3.7 billion DH with an added value of 2.5 billion DH and a self-sustainability of 273 million DH, 5.8% higher compared to a year earlier.

The ONCF travellers grew by 28 million reaching 40 million over the same year, in addition to the transportation of 28 million tons of goods.
