This meeting, held between the President of the Regional Council, Omar Moro, the Deputy General Manager of the Chinese group CCCC/CRBC, Shi Xiaobo, and the commercial manager of the group, Liu Qi, was an opportunity to review the progress of this major project.
According to a statement from the regional council, Xiaobo reviewed the stages of completion of this important project on the administrative and legal levels and on the ground, highlighting the progress of operations aimed to attract Chinese investment in the industrial zone under development in Ain Dalia, near Tangier.
For his part, Moro expressed his firm commitment to the success of this major investment project, calling on the Chinese side and the management of the Development Company of Tangier Tech (SATT) to hold regular meetings to review the progress of the project and resolve any constraints that may hamper its implementation.
