The year 2022 has seen a spectacular increase in terms of investments in the Tangier-Tetouan-Al Hoceima region. According to figures released by local authorities, the Unified Regional Investment Commission (CRUI) approved 508 projects last year, a considerable increase of 65% compared to 2021. This is an impressive leap forward that demonstrates, once again, the attractiveness of this region, which is establishing itself day by day as the future leading industrial hub of Morocco.
The 508 projects authorized total a volume of investment of $5.2 million (53 MMDH), said the Regional Investment Center (CRI). According to the same source, these projects should generate more than 90,000 new stable jobs eventually. Moreover, what confirms the rise of this region is that the local CRI has accompanied the filing of 1,100 investment files in 2022, or about 15% of the files filed at the national level. The 508 projects approved, representing 63% of projects reviewed, place the region above the national average.
