Dn the Aziz Akhannouch government unveiled on October 7, the Strategy Department of Traffic and Logistics goes to Mohamed Abdeljalil, Chairman of the Board of Marsa Maroc.
Mohamed Abdeljalil, a graduate of the National School of Bridges and Roads (Paris), began his career with the company Arthur Andersen in Paris. In 1993, he returned to Morocco to hold various positions in Bymaro, a subsidiary of the Bouygues Group’s real estate.
In 2003, the Minister of Transport and Equipment Karim Ghellab recruited him to head the Directorate of Programs and Studies.
Appointed head of the Port Operations Office (ODEP) in 2005, Mohamed Abdeljalil will lead the reform of the public institution that will become the company Marsa Maroc a year later. In 2016, the state sold 40% of the company’s capital on the stock exchange for 1.9 billion dirhams. And last July, the state transferred 35% of the share capital to the Tanger Med group for 5.48 billion dirhams.
This latest operation is part of the reorganization of state assets, by bringing all logistics players (sea, rail, land, air) together in one pile. And it is this titanic project that Mohamed Abdeljalil must now realize.
Among the first files of this reorganization, the reform of the railway that, as announced TelQuel, is in her home area. Mohamed Abdeljalil must also get the national logistics strategy back on track. Launched in 2010, the completion rate in 2020 was only 14%.
