Moroccan expatriates who had already transferred their fiscal residency before the date of publication at Official Bulletin and who have not yet finished the statement procedures as set by Dahir n 1-59-358, October 17, 1959 related to assets obtained abroad, have one year period as of October 19, 2015 to declare their property at the Office of Change.

The declaration should be accompanied by a form that is attached to the above mentioned decision, documents justifying that the concerned person is living abroad, the exercise of an activity, and property ownership document.

As for Moroccan expatriates abroad who transferred their fiscal residency to Morocco after the Law 63-14 was published at the Official Bulletin, the period of declaration is set in one year as of the date of their transfer of their fiscal residency to Morocco.

The new law also allows Moroccan expatriates to conduct any disposition on their declared property without  addressing the Office of Change, as well as the possibility to keep their declared liquidity in foreign accounts.

The office of Change has devoted in its website a section destined to this operation entitled “ “Moroccan living abroad declarations”. The section includes all the necessary information on this operation.

Marokko wordt nieuwe supermacht in hernieuwbare energie

De Marokkaanse handelsstad Ouarzazate, ook wel de deur naar de woestijn genoemd, wil het zenuwcentrum worden van hernieuwbare energiebronnen en de thuisbasis zijn voor vier gekoppelde zonneparken, die naast waterkracht en windenergie de helft van alle Marokkaanse huishoudens wil voorzien van elektriciteit uit hernieuwbare bronnen tegen 2020 en hoopt een deel van de opgewekte energie ook te exporteren naar Europa.

Ouarzazate

Het project is een belangrijke springplank voor Marokko voor hun ambitieuze doelen om de onbenutte woestijnen te gebruiken een zonnesupermacht te worden.

De eerste fase van het project, Noor 1 genoemd, zal volgende maand beginnen. De spiegeltechnologie die wordt gebruikt bij dit project is duurder dan de gewone panelen die overal op de daken te zien zijn, maar heeft het voordeel dat het ook stroom opwekt na zonsondergang.

Wetenschapper Gerhard Knies had in 1986 al berekend dat de woestijnen in de wereld in een paar uur tijd genoeg energie opvangen om de hele wereld van energie te voorzien voor een jaar. De uitdaging was echter om de energie te vangen en te transporteren naar bewoonde gebieden waar de energie nodig is.

Noor 1 bestaat uit 500.000 halvemaanvormige zonnepanelen verspreid over 800 rijen en heeft een capaciteit van 160MW. Wanneer het gehele project is afgerond zullen de vier zonnekrachtcentrales evenveel ruimte in beslag nemen als de hoofdstad van Marokko, Rabat, en 580MW electriciteit opwekken. Genoeg om een miljoen huishoudens van stroom te voorzien.

3m opent Hub in Tanger

Marrakech – American company 3M will establish its regional hub in the city of Tangier, a city known for being a supply chain for North, Central and Western Africa. The platform will be operational by the end of 2015.

3M is a US scientific industrial enterprise, present in many strategic sectors in Morocco, including mining, health, automotive, infrastructure, security, border control, and banking technology.

By establishing a logistics center in Morocco, the company aims to strengthen its presence throughout the French speaking countries in North, Central and Western Africa. This presence will give it the opportunity to expand its supply line in the region.

The choice of Morocco is also due to its unique geographical position, its political stability, and its good business environment, especially in Tangier.

The group achieved a revenue of MAD 211 million  in 2012. It has operated in Morocco for 20 years.

Present in over 70 countries around the world, the US conglomerate sells about 55,000 products, addressed particularly to industry, electronics, energy, safety, and health.
