CASABLANCA, AN ECONOMIC CAPITAL

Casablanca is the largest city in the Maghreb, , with nearly 4 million inhabitants. Since the 19th century, the city has grown steadily to the first business center, the first port, the first financial place and the largest university center of the country.
Casablanca is the business city ‘par excellence’ and a crossroads for Morocco. Its international airport serves all major cities in the world, while the city’s commercial harbor, banks and financial services provides Casablanca with 65% of the country's economic product.




Casablanca’s first modern port was built in 1912. This date was a turning point in the history of the City, triggering and intensifying the economic development of the region, draining domestic and international investment. The port activity gave birth to the economic capital of the Kingdom, the dynamic and modern hub that we know today.
