Tangier is the principal city of Morocco located on a coastline of the Strait of Gibraltar. Built on a limestone hill, Tangier is surrounded by a casbah, the Great Mosque, and the sultan’s palace. It was made an international zone administered by France, Spain, and Britain. During World War II, Tangier was under the Spanish regime of Francisco Franco, but after the war, the international administration was reinstated. The statute remained in force until Morocco gained independence in 1956. Following Moroccan independence, Tangier rejoined the rest of the country.

With its four industrial parks in the textile, mechanical, chemical, metallurgical, and naval sectors, Tangier is the next most significant industrial center in Morocco after Casablanca. The city’s economy is primarily reliant on tourism with increasing seaside resorts funded by foreign investments. Real estate and construction companies have also made significant investments in tourist infrastructure. The Tanger-Med industrial port has played a vital role in connecting maritime regions, fostering trade between Morocco, Europe, the Mediterranean, Africa, and the Americas, and creating new jobs, contributing to economic growth.
