The statement added that Moroccan Business Bridge will mark the official launch of "CGEM's 13th digital region."
In February, the CGEM and the Ministry of Migration Affairs signed a partnership agreement in order to set up a digital network known as the "13th region" of the CGEM, which aims to facilitate the integration of Morocco's global entrepreneurs into the Moroccan economy.
The press release added that the digital network aims to create a platform for professional exchange between Morocco's world entrepreneurs and those based in Morocco. It aims also to encourage Moroccan investors living abroad to invest in the Moroccan market and to contribute to the development of the Kingdom by enhancing its image abroad.
