AMICA (Moroccan Association for automotive Industry & car manufacturers) is looking for and helping investors move to Morocco to support the booming Moroccan automotive industry. The Moroccan automobile industry has been going through an impressive evolution and development since its early days. Morocco has moved from being a mere CKD assembly player to becoming a major car manufacturer, exporting vehicles to 75 countries across the globe.
The AMICA organization contributes to achieving and implementing the objectives set by public authorities in relation with sectorial policies. For instance, the organization is leading the industrial ramp up plan, initiated in 2014, by creating ecosystems in Morocco. Thanks to its partnership with car manufacturers already implemented in Morocco, AMICA has determined the needs in amenities and process development in order to meet car manufacturers? needs and attract more constructors. OEMs currently implemented in Morocco supply local and worldwide car manufacturers. Several benefits are offered to investors who wish to support rising Moroccan ecosystems.
