The prospects that the investment will carry for the commune and the entire regions were discussed on October 24 during a meeting between the governor of the Tantan province, Hassan Abdelkhalki, and representatives of the banking sector. The governor explained that the area possesses an interesting strategic location near the port of Tantan.
The official added that “it was agreed to support and set up an industrial complex in the commune of El Ouatia” in the framework of the “mobilization of real estate for the benefit of investment project.” He added that the project will be in collaboration with other provinces in the region of Guelmim-Oued Noun that El Ouatia commune is part of.
During the meeting, the representatives of the banks affirmed their involvement in this dynamic through financing investments and supporting all activities that create value and create job opportunities.
