Just few months ago, Renault betted on Morocco as their next manufacturing hub. Solar farms are established in our Sahara and rumours of Casablanca becoming a smart city is on the loose. This is just the right time where Morocco ought to step up its technological development. Don’t we ever forget that other countries of MENA Region look at Morocco’s stability as a fertile edge for a regional upheaval. Moroccans are also considered to be one of the smartest population on earth. I mean, isn’t this the right recipe of a possible shift from a mere consumer to a producer of amazing innovations? We have few good and recent examples of nations that shifted through two phases with utmost skill and maneuvering. Zoom in to Turkey, which is manufacturing textile, home equipments and lately medical devices, which is considered one of the most challenging tech industry to venture. On the other hand, South Korea which is always threatened by war and was an agricultural country like any other 3rd world country, now produces a tech- empire of Samsung, medical devices, Automobiles and so much more.
What is so interesting of these ex-3rd world Nations?
The formula relied on their individuals who are clustered in active communities wanting their country to start making stuff, and exporting value to the world instead of just consuming and watching others shaping their future. They accepted the challenge of playing catch up with the developed world and built their mental arsenal for individual development and purpose.
Now the question is : What is the purpose of the Moroccan Tech Revolution?
This is how we see it in TechVerse: We ought to invest on our youth for a better tomorrow. How? Well, Knowledge is Power. This power can uplift us from national sticky situations, can secure us Peace, can develop our surrounding into a much better place tolerable of positive Growth.
Then let’s plant the seed and help it grow, together. — Kat
