Morocco's 'Textile Plan 2025' to create 250,000 jobs
May '13
By 2025, the Moroccan textile sector is planning to create up to 250,000 jobs and export up to 85 billion dirhams (US$ 9.87 billion) of textile goods, under the “Textile Plan 2025” announced by Abdelkader Amara, the Minister of Industry, Trade and New Technologies of Morocco, a country located in the north-western region of Africa.
In a meeting with the Moroccan Association of Textile and Clothing (AMITH), the Minister highlighted on the need to raise the role of public-private partnership in the Moroccan textile industry.
The Minister said the Textile Plan 2025 will primarily focus on three areas – textiles and clothing; home textiles; and textiles for technical applications.
The ambitious ‘Textile Plan 2025’ aims to accelerate the growth of the Moroccan textile industry in order to turn Morocco into a leading textile exporting nation at the regional and international levels. 
The contracts for the Moroccan textile sector will play a key role in the implementation of the Textile Plan 2025, which will be a “program of proactive leadership for the Moroccan textile sector for long-term strategic development,” the Minister said.
“If the local textile market of Morocco currently accounts for 40 billion dirhams, then our goal is to reach 90 billion dirhams in 2025,” said Mohamed Tazi, the Director General of AMITH.
Mr. Tazi added, “It is only by achieving this dual performance—introducing new jobs and inviting larger investments—that the textile industry can position itself as a pioneer in the Moroccan industry sector.”
The ‘Textile Plan 2025’ will be operational by 2014 and the Government will appoint working groups for the program in order to sift through the various measures that were proposed during the meeting.
