The economy of Morocco is the “most interesting in North Africa in terms of growth potential,” said Dominique Gautier, a partner in the Munich-based “Roland Berger Strategy Consultant” which has an office in Casablanca, Morocco.
Gautier who explained to “The Financial Times” the reasons behind opening a branch in Morocco noted that Morocco offers great opportunities for consulting companies. Roland Berger Strategy Consultants is one of the world’s leading strategy consultancies with 36 offices in 25 countries, the company has successful operations in all major international markets.
“As well as helping local companies such as Royal Air Maroc with their ambitious pan-African strategies, the consultancy has just finalized a new sports strategy for the kingdom of Morocco,” Gautier said.
The FT stressed that international consultancies are reporting steady or strong growth in their African businesses, adding that only China receives more investment than the MEDA countries (in which Morocco is a major partner).
