The Moroccan Ministry of Digital Transition and the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ) have entered into two partnership agreements, worth a total of €8 million, to drive the digital transformation of the Moroccan administration and promote the digital inclusion of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
The first agreement, titled “Digital Transformation of the Moroccan Administration,” worth €3 million over a period of three years, aims to support public administrations and institutions in modernizing citizen-centric digital services. It seeks to implement innovative approaches to cooperation with the digital ecosystem to accelerate the digital transformation of the public sector in Morocco.
The second agreement, titled “Digital Inclusion of Very Small, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises,” is valued at €5 million over four years. It aims to enhance the technical and organizational capacities of institutional players in the field of digital inclusion of SMEs. The initiative also aims to reduce transaction costs for service providers in order to facilitate the digitization of SMEs and improve their ability to utilize appropriate services for their digital transformation.
GIZ will provide support in three key areas – change management, development of a cross-functional support program for public administrations, and engagement with users and stakeholders. Additionally, GIZ will create a community of digital ambassadors to facilitate the adoption and utilization of digital technologies within public administrations.
The partnership between the Moroccan Ministry of Digital Transition and GIZ demonstrates a joint commitment to driving digital transformation across Morocco. By integrating digital technologies and fostering digital inclusion, the government aims to leverage innovation, competitiveness, and performance in both the public and private sectors.
By implementing these initiatives, Morocco seeks to position itself as a digitally advanced nation, fostering an environment conducive to the growth and success of SMEs, and providing efficient and citizen-centric digital services.
