Morocco Transport

An influx of capital and a number of major upgrades have improved Morocco’s transport sector significantly in recent years, with private investment initiatives working alongside the state-led development programme. Despite tight budgetary constraints, authorities allocated a large chunk of the 2015 budget towards transport projects, with the biggest slice going to the ports segment, followed by tranches for road, rail, airport and logistics upgrades. These projects should help push Morocco up the World Economic Forum’s rankings for global competitiveness, where it is currently ranked 55th out of 144 countries for overall infrastructure, well above many of its North African neighbours.

This chapter contains interviews with Driss Benhima, Chairman of the Board and CEO, Royal Air Maroc; and Nadia Laraki, General Manager, National Ports Agency.
