It is ranked Africa’s destination No. 1 in terms of tourist arrivals, and investment attractiveness in 2016 as well.

Mr. Imad Barrakad said: “We have very attractive  incentives for Chinese investors, such as tax exemption, cash contributions and other financing supports, like attractive pricing for prime location land parcels. I believe Morocco will welcome more Chinese foreign direct investment in the near future.”
