Road infrastructure is an essential piece of Morocco's socioeconomic development strategy, as accurately foreseen by and promoted through directives issued by His Majesty the King Mohammed VI. Along with implementation of these directives, the Moroccan government places top priority on the nation's innovation policy. More specifically, in its program presented to the Parliament in May 2017, the government declared its support for innovation by sponsoring a legal framework to stimulate corporate actions, along with: the financing of projects of qualitative benefit to this sector, the launch of a regional program to create innovative clusters, and subsidies for competition and innovation centers.
