sustained momentum in 2022

Business creation in Morocco experienced sustained momentum in 2022, despite the two shocks of inflation and the Ukraine-Russia conflict that marked the year.

Driven in particular by the large-scale programs and projects launched by Morocco to strengthen the national entrepreneurial fabric, as well as by the continuous improvement of the framework, this dynamic has affected the majority of economic sectors.

According to recent figures from the Moroccan Industrial and Commercial Property Office (OMPIC), 77,322 companies were created during the first ten months of this year. These companies are legal persons (52,968) and natural persons (24,354), specifies the Office.

By sector, trade dominates with a share of 36.42% of companies created, followed by building and public works (BTP) and real estate activities (17.72%), miscellaneous services (17.48%). , transport (8.88%), industries (7.12%), hotels and restaurants (6.46%), information and communication technologies (2.59%), agriculture and fishing (2.22%) and financial activities (1.1%).

2022: the year of promoting entrepreneurship par excellence

Although the Moroccan economy was facing a slowdown and major challenges, including soaring commodity and energy prices, the promotion of entrepreneurship was not lost sight of.

Thus, an agreement was signed last March to improve banking services capable of supporting businesses, in particular small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), by increasing the threshold part of the program’s loans. Tamwilcom” and the extension of the repayment period of the “Oxygen” “Relance” loans up to three years.

The same month, the executive launched Forsa, a mentoring project that aims to support Moroccan entrepreneurs and boost employment.

This program, which presents itself as a solution allowing aspiring entrepreneurs to obtain financing, allocates a budget of 1.2 billion dirhams (MMDH) to help more than 10,000 project leaders in all sectors during the current year. .

For its part, the Awrach program, which had reached its operational stage on February 19, aims to stimulate the creation of direct jobs. This major project, based on the support of business projects, cooperatives and associations, targets 250,000 beneficiaries, whose jobs have been affected by the pandemic.

These support measures, which have proven their worth over the past months of 2022, are thus generators of competition and drivers of change and improvement in the quality of life of citizens.

Indeed, the vitality of business creation lies in the fact that these organizations adapt more easily to new technologies, because their planning and management do not require a great deal of capital.

These newly created companies, however, must endure highly competitive markets and for this they must achieve business development that takes into account the strengthening of leadership, knowledge management and innovation.

In this regard, Redouane El Haloui, President of the Federation of Information Technologies, Telecommunications and Offshoring (APEBI), affirmed that a positive impact can be achieved in the entrepreneurial ecosystem by recognizing the capacities of the human capital, emphasizing the importance of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurs as a contribution to the growth of any country.

For him, it is important to offer concrete opportunities to young talents in order to allow the national start-up scene to pursue its ambitions of building an integrated ecosystem.

“Vibrant and growing businesses stimulate economies, help create jobs, boost productivity and increase incomes. This is why it is essential to support project promoters and companies of all sizes so that they can grow and take advantage of the advantages of operating on a larger scale,” he explained.

For next year, the government had announced, it should be remembered, its intention to continue financing business incubator programs as a means of stimulating employability, within the framework of the 2023 finance law.
