Mention IT in North Africa and talk inevitably turns to Egypt. But perhaps they should be thinking about the potential
in Morocco? Budde has called Morocco ‘one of the most advanced telecommunications markets in Africa and often
seen as a role model for future developments in other parts of the continent’, while its proximity to Europe means it
is well placed to become a technology leader on the continent. To test opinion on Morocco, we interviewed 38 IT and
business professionals in Morocco and the MENA area, asking if they thought the country’s IT market had potential
to boom. In this short study, we found the results were incredibly positive. This was especially true from within the
country, where almost 90% felt the country was ready to boom.
