Morocco and Chinese company HAITE Group have proposed to build a one billion U.S. dollars industrial and residential park in Morocco’s northern city of Tangiers.
Carried out by the Tangiers-Tetouan-Al Hoceima regional authorities, Morocco’s BMCE Bank and HAITE, the project will cover an area of 2,000 hectares and generate 100,000 jobs.
On May 11, 2016, Chinese President Xi Jinping and King Mohammed VI of Morocco signed a joint statement on establishing a strategic partnership between the two countries in Beijing.
As part of the partnership, a memorandum of understanding to set up an industrial and residential park in Morocco was signed months later by the Moroccan government and HAITE.
