In an exciting development poised to propel Morocco’s digital landscape forward, Minister Ghita Mezzour, Delegate to the Head of Government in Charge of Digital Transition and Administrative Reform, has unveiled a bold vision for the upcoming second edition of Gitex Africa Morocco.

During a promotional tour in Casablanca aimed at bolstering support for Moroccan startups and gearing up for the event, Mezzour expressed profound pride in the exponential growth of local participation.
