Morocco’s Dakhla port to be ready in 2028
Works are underway to deliver the Dakhla Port, in Morocco’s Sahara territory, by 2028, Moroccan media le360 reported.
The $1 bln port will span over an area of 1650 hectares and would serve as a maritime transport hub for southern Morocco and West Africa.
This major infrastructure would also serve as a fishing and import-export port and will be located 40 kilometers away from Dakhla.
The project was launched under instructions by King Mohammed VI in 2016 in view of its role in unlocking the economic potential of the southern provinces and bolstering ties with Sub-Saharan Africa.
Moroccan authorities have previously announced plans to set up free industrial zones to attract investments that shall benefit from the deep-water port.
