Morocco’s Council of Ministers passed Law 10.20 on Defense and Security Materials and Equipment, Weapons and Ammunition. This text defines the legal framework for the manufacture, transport, trade, import and export of weapons.
Knowing that a meeting between the office and the House Foreign Relations Committee on Friday, Loudiyi confirmed Morocco’s plans to build a defence industry, where the meeting was held to review the Ministry of Finance’s budget for the Finance Law 2023.

China and Israel have recently emerged as important defence partners for Morocco, and India is also eyeing the North African market.
