Morocco mulls industrial zones in Dakhla port- media
Morocco’s King Mohammed VI has underscored the strategic importance of the port of Dakhla in unlocking the economic potential of the southern provinces and boosting links with Sub-Saharan Africa.
The one billion dollar port will serve as a fishing and import-export port and will be located 40 kilometers away from Dakhla.
Recently, the US proclaimed its recognition of Morocco’s sovereignty over the Sahara region, has launched the process to open a consulate in Dakhla, and promised to roll out billions of dollars in investments.
Dakhla and Laayoune are already hosting consulates of some 20 countries which augurs well for promoting investments in the region.
