Probably because Casa has no real open economy just like the rest of the country. A couple of rich families own everything and block every competition and always demand a part in foreign companies.

South-Africa has a very open economy, that is why their cities are ranked high.
Singapore, Hong Kong have one of the most open economies in the world. Countries like UAE, Doha , Dubai etc have also very open economies.

Nairobi has more an open economy than Casa. It is not the leader of Kenya who decides who get permission or not. In Kenya investors can buy land, open companies much easier than in Morocco.

The same story is for Cairo and Alexandria, they are more open than Morocco and especially now Mubarak is gone and the army has started some small economic reforms.
You just have to read Wikileaks and you know how difficult it is to start a business in Morocco if you don't know people from the palace.

Is it true that Morocco has the most closed economy system in the entire world ?

Good luck with investing in the very open economy of Morocco..
:nuts:

The old guard's interests depend chiefly on their stature within the makhzen hierarchy. Small patrons typically profit from local commercial schemes, dubious housing subsidies and job-related benefits, payoffs from the delivery of permits and services (legal or illegal). Powerful patrons with connections to the royal palace are involved in large-scale business deals in farming, banking, construction, commerce, textiles, tourism, manufacturing and food processing. By virtue of their position, they benefit from state contracts, land concessions, free utilities, reduced taxes, regional monopolies and all manner of tariff protections. With King Hassan's knowledge and approval, [8] the major power brokers and their families and trusted clients divided Morocco's agricultural regions and industrial zones among themselves, each taking care of his cronies and chasing away undesirable intruders. It is difficult to imagine how the system can be reformed with these groups still ensconced in power and privilege.

Look even though Nairobi is more " open " than Casablanca , Casablanca is still a richer , more developed and way more competitive than hundreds of Africa's main cities !

So that's why i think that this list is Bullshit ! Most of these lists are anyway .

So weither Casablanca is on it or not , it doesn't make a difference .

With the Arab Spring , i think only Moroccan , Algerian and South African cities can top any " competitiveness list " . Other promising coutries like Kenya , Nigeria and Angola , should be there in the next 5 years or so .

Having said that , i'm a Hardcore believer in Morocco's demise , so you don't really need to tell me everytime that we have a shitty government ... I know ! :D

99% of Mister79 posts are about "Morocco not having an open economy" , i have a tendency to skip reading anything he posts .

Having said that only the morons thinks that an open economy is a good thing . If you open your borders to a country like china you are in deep shit , you won't even be able to produce anything , since you can't compete with their prices . Same goes for the west in high tech stuff , it is just easy to buy their products than making your own .

Open economy the way for economic slavery . Continue in believing the globalization garbage .

Having said that i still believe in a fair economy were national investors should be equal in term investing power .
