Priority is given to the capacity development of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Tangier (CCSI-TTA) and the National Federation for the Food Industry (FENAGRI), as well as to increasing the competitiveness of Moroccan MSMEs in the food industry sector through improved chamber services. As a result, local enterprises should be enabled to gain better access to national and international markets. In addition, a centre for young entrepreneurs and a Food Academy in Ouezzane similar to the Food Academy of the Schwerin Chamber of Commerce and Industry is to be established as part of the project. The construction is now about 90% complete. The curriculum for the qualification measures and the creation of advertising and communication materials are currently being developed.
