Government policy

With billions of dollars committed to improving the country’s infrastructure, Morocco aims to become a world player in terms of marine transport.[citation needed] The government is well aware that a well-oiled transport sector is essential to accelerate growth in such key economic sectors as agriculture, tourism and industry. The 2008-2012 investment plan aims to invest $16.3 billion and will contribute to major projects such as the combined port and industrial complex of the Tanger-Med and the construction of a high-speed train between Tangier and Casablanca. The plan will also improve and expand the existing highway system and expand the Casablanca Mohammed V International Airport. Morocco’s transport sector is one of the kingdom’s most dynamic, and will remain so for years to come. The improvements in infrastructure will boost other sectors and will also help the country in its goal of attracting 10 million tourists by 2010.
