Industrial Zones Minimize

These areas fall within the framework of a national and urban development plan in order to enhance the role of industrial zones in the development of urban areas, commercial activities and services. It is a model which has proved to be effective because it can create jobs and stabilize the population of urban zones.

The main industrial zone of Laâyoune region is located in El Marsa. Other areas are being developed including:

• An activity zone in the city of Laayoune
• An exportation free zone in the city of El Marsa

in addition to the major attractions of the region: Naîla lagoon, Khoui Nâam cascade, Emssièd oasis, Tafoudart Valley, Tarfaya-Casamar, Hamamat Jraifia…

Given its unique position on the Atlantic and the Bay of the same name, industrial zones of Dakhla mostly lie at the Bay of Dakhla and more  specifically at the port zone. Other areas are planned in the bay in the surrounding area: Foum El Bouir.
