Morocco’s regional investment centers that are supposed to assist investors, both national and foreign, and to facilitate the paperwork for the setting up of projects will be restructured after an audit revealed many dysfunctions preventing these centers from fulfilling their mission properly. The audit, commissioned by the King on October 24, to assess the operations of the centers, known in Morocco as CRIs, revealed that there are many dysfunctions preventing these centers from fulfilling their missions in accordance with the royal letter of January 9, 2002, said a statement released by the Royal Office. They should also be proactive, and interact with the investors. To remedy this situation, the king gave instructions to the Head of Government to work with all the parties concerned to draft proposals for the reform of the CRIs within two months. The reform would seek to enable the CRIs to play their role in encouraging and promoting investment and exploiting the investment opportunities offered by the national economy, the Royal Office statement said.
