Morocco’s challenge in the ICT sector for the coming years is to enable the country’s integration into the global economy knowledge, through an integration broadened and widely disseminated of IT within all levels and actors of society: states, administrations, companies, and citizens.
A new vision for technological advancement, “Digital Morocco 2020”, has been developed in a participatory approach that aimed to reduce the digital divide by 50%, “digitizing” 50% of administrative procedures, equipping and connecting 20% of SMEs, and training 30,000 IT professionals.
