The Minister noted that the signing of this legal documentation, including the specifications, the institution’s statutes, the shareholders' agreement and the documents certifying reverse transactions and shares subscription, initiates the new development dynamic of our stock market. This set will help the Stock Exchange achieve a shift in a secure and clear legal framework to ensure the success of this project which is a component of the promotion and positioning of the Casablanca financial center project as a regional and financial hub according to the guidelines of HIS MAJESTY THE KING.

Similarly, the Minister stressed that this ceremony matches with the listing of the company “Marsa Maroc”.
