Morocco has made significant progress in its digital transformation. In a bid to better cater to its population, the government has enlisted the support of the United States, a leading nation in digital development.

A Moroccan delegation led by Sarah Lamrani, Secretary General of the Ministry of Digital Transition and Administration Reform, recently concluded a week-long visit to the United States aiming to strengthen digital cooperation.

The visit, initiated by the US Trade and Development Agency (USTDA), saw delegations meet with executives from around 20 US technology companies and local startups, including IBM, Microsoft, and Google Cloud Services. Discussions focused on potential partnerships in fields like e-government, cloud computing, and cybersecurity.

"The goal was to explore collaborations with American companies to develop and strengthen our digital ecosystem," stated Lamrani. It aligns with the country’s  2030 digital strategy, which is currently being finalized.

The Moroccan delegation presented the key goals of their digital transformation plan, highlighting achievements in areas like human capital development through collaborations with companies like Microsoft and Oracle. They also highlighted opportunities for US companies seeking expansion in emerging markets.

This visit builds upon the existing relationship between the US and Morocco in the information and communication technology (ICT) sector. US companies have already played a significant role in contributing to Morocco's digital development.
