Morocco: Spreading its wings

The OCP group is spreading its wings over the African continent more than ever before. Morocco has one of the biggest reserves of phosphates in the world, a key ingredient in the production of fertilisers. It is reaching out to partners in Africa, not only to export its fertilisers, which have been specifically designed for African soil, but also to collaborate with countries rich in gas to build fertiliser plants across Africa. Last month, during the King’s official state visit, it signed its first significant partnership with the government of Gabon. M. A. reports
