This is what we want to see from Morocco, not the hypothetical war stuff. Keep prospering. I heard the Moroccan aerospace industry is quite big?

IAI says "a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in the aeronautics sector was signed during the meeting between the Minister of Industry and Trade, Mr. Ryad Mezzour, and the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), Mr. Amir Peretz." Pay attention to the chairman of IA talking in moroccan dialect. ( He was born in morocco)

The American Frost and Sullivan group, a research and consulting firm focused on market research and analysis, said in a market research report that “Morocco is about to become a weapons (producing) country within the coming years…at least, it will host foreign factories, starting in the year 2025.”

This MRO center is a big step forward on the scale of the Moroccan Army and Morocco.

It will be a modern center, with western standards, for the maintenance of our entire fleet, from transport planes to fighter planes. The center will be installed near the Benslimane . The facility will have 15,000 square meters. Morocco has signed a strategic partnership with Belgian firms Sabca and Sabena Aerospace, alongside American giant Lockheed Martin, for the maintenance and support of F-16 and C-130 Hercules aircraft. It will allow maintenance of all MAF aircraft, at all levels: A, B, C and especially D-Check. We were obliged before to send our C-130s abroad for Check-D, the major maintenance visit, but now we will take the matters into our own hands.!


“This project represents the first achievement in the framework of the recent law aimed at enabling the Kingdom of Morocco to develop a military-industrial and defence activity and to draw strategic and economic benefits from it,” Blueberry Group stated.

Achievment from 2018

El Othmani said that the Mohammed VI-B satellite, launched on Tuesday night, is a “Moroccan achievement to be proud of.”
MOHAMMED VI-B satellite is part of the space program the King of Morocco decided in 2013. The realization of this program, spreading over a five-year period, was entrusted to the consortium Thales Alenia Space and Airbus.

Moroccan engineers and technicians were specifically trained in Morocco and abroad to manage the Mohammed VI-B satellite in the same way as Mohammed VI-A.

Morocco is the third African country to have a reconnaissance satellite after Egypt and South Africa. However, Morocco will be the first African country to possess a constellation of earth surveillance satellites equipped with a very high resolution.

The Mohammed VI-B satellite is capable of taking up to 1,000 images per day with a resolution of up to 70 centimeters.

Morocco To Open ‘Gigafactory’ For Electric Vehicle Batteries​

Details on potential partners or the number of investments needed for the project are yet to be disclosed but Mezzour referred to the plant as a “gigafactory,” a term closely linked to Tesla, which could also simply highlight its large scale and production capacity.

Poised to compete with China and India, Morocco seeks to increase the integration of its automotive sector by boosting local production of vehicle parts and cutting its reliance on imports. Morocco aims to boost the rate of locally-made car parts directed to export from 65% to 80%, Mezzour said.

Mezzour highlighted that the automotive and aerospace industry are “two drivers of industrial innovation.” Morocco is interested in expanding its network of aerospace industry plants within the country. Currently, the country hosts 140 aerospace industry plants that build roughly 43% of plane components, the minister added.
