PANEL DISCUSSION

Morocco is fast emerging as a hub for accessing markets in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Our panel of business leaders, investment experts and veteran investors will discuss the key drivers behind investment in Morocco, examine the most exciting opportunities in the automotive, steel, agro-industry, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industry, and provide an overview of the incentives and policies in place to attract foreign investment.

  • What are the key growth markets for Indian investors in Morocco?
  • What can be done to strengthen commercial ties between India and Morocco?
  • Widening the lens, how will the Arab spring affect short and long-term investor sentiment in the MENA region?
  • Beyond BRICS: will investing in smaller emerging economies pay off in the long term?
