Morocco Secures Top Position in the International Intellectual Property Index for Africa and the Arab World

According to the latest report released by the American Chamber of Commerce on February 22, 2024, Morocco has secured the first position in both Africa and the Arab region in International Intellectual Property Index. Out of the 55 countries evaluated, Morocco maintains its rank of 22nd globally, with an overall score of 62.76 points.

These initiatives aim to streamline and expedite the processing of patent applications. Read more
