Morocco is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. This country shares a border with Algeria to the east. It has a surface area of 446.550 sqkm. With its population of 35,7 million, Morocco is the 5th largest economy in Africa. Its GDP of US$110.2 billion comes mainly from tourism and agriculture (source: FMI – World Bank – DNS – CIA WorldFactbook, 2017).
Morocco has been able to take advantage of its exceptional geographical location which has allowed it to establish close relations with Europe and be the port of entry into Africa.
For these reasons, France is Morocco’s largest trading partner and its second largest supplier. Its political stability means it has already attracted the vast majority of CAC 40 companies and subsidiaries of French companies (about 750) employ 80,000 people, not counting Moroccan companies run by French entrepreneurs.
In order to meet the needs of its customers on the Moroccan market, Simon Associés has developed privileged relations with economic and legal partners locally.
