Hello,

In 2018 I like to travel to Morocco and ride the new High-Speed Rail.
What sections of the new High-Speed-Rail will be opened in 2018?
Will there any section of the new upgraded railway be opened in 2018?

Is there an official opening date?

Tahnks

It is planned to be brought into operation in 2018 in one time. No phasing is planned.
As per my knowledge no official opening date. If I were you I would not plan any trip before we have more clarity about the delivery (that is to say Q2 2018)...

How can Morocco afford this? I don't want to seem rude, but it is a poor country

France is providing the loans, just as the Japanese or the Chinese do when they sell their systems in southern Asia. The GDP per person in India, Indonesia or Vietnam is not very far from what it is is Morocco.

Poverty is relative.

Morocco has spent $1.8 billion (or 1.8% of its nominal GDP in 2016) to connect its biggest urban agglomerations (Tangier and Casabance/Rabat/Kenitara) with each other, California will do the same for approximately $64 billion (or 2.6% of its GDP in 2015).

To be honest Tangier is not one of the biggest urban areas in the country. Fez and Meknes are far bigger as far as I know, so is Marrakesh.

Having said that connection with Tangier is important.

In the 90's maybe...

In 2017, Tangier is probably the third city after Casablanca and Rabat-Salé. Not so long ago Fes was third, but the demographic growth of Tangier was double digits for the last ten years, so it has probably surpassed Fes.

According to Wikipedia Fes is still 2nd largest city in Morocco (after Casablanca). Of course it might not be the most reliable source but it's best I could find.

Anyway, are there any plans for high speed link with Fes or at least for an upgrade, something like between Kenitra and Casa?

It is not about the size of a city. Tangier is the second economic and industrial hub of the country after Casablanca hence making it more relevant to be connected to it through HSL.
Regarding Fes a HSL is planned on the long term tbut I don't think it will be built any time soon. The current double track line is quite recent and AFAIK it might undergo an upgrade (signaling,...).
