Morocco was named "Offshoring Destination of the Year" by the European Outsourcing Association (EOA), which presented its 2012 awards Wednesday evening in London.
The award recognises Morocco’s attractiveness as a platform for providing business, information and communications technology services to European organisations seeking cost competitive solutions for deploying their sourcing strategies.
Morocco beat five other destinations shortlisted for the award including South Africa, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, and Egypt.
The EOA judges cited Morocco’s success in establishing an attractive nearshore outsourcing industry, with strong backing of testimonials from European companies, such as Dell, Logica, Deloitte, HP and Attento, who are benefitting from doing business from Morocco.
"Being chosen as EOA’s Offshoring Destination of the Year is a great testament to the daily contributions of the 55,000 women and men working in Morocco’s world class outsourcing centres", said Abderrafie Hanouf, Director General of MEDZ Sourcing, operator of dedicated business parks including Casanearshore Park, Rabat Technopolis and Fès Shore, which opened officially on 20th of June.
"This is a great honour", Said Mr. Hanouf, adding that EOA is considered the most important association of professionals and experts in the outsourcing industry.
"Receiving their award validates our value proposition, which is to offer world class infrastructure, stable, competitive costs, and well-trained human resources, in combination with Morocco’s geographic, cultural and linguistic proximity to Europe", continued Mr. Hanouf.
MEDZ Sourcing, (Mediterranean Zones for Sourcing), an affiliate of CDG Group, is the region’s leading company specialized in developing, promoting and managing Technology parks dedicated to the outsourcing industry all over Morocco.
