As part of IESC's Morocco Commercial Development Organization Support Program, IESC organized an Open Day Event in El Jadida on March 13, working in collaboration with the Association des Incubés d’El Jadida and the Association des Femmes Chefs d’Entreprises d’El Jadida. 

The theme of the day was "The SME, a Job, a Future" and focused on promoting economic advocacy and access to finance. The event provided an opportunity for representatives from enterprises of varying sizes throughout the region to come together to meet one another, discuss the challenges they face and possible solutions, and identify new business opportunities. At the end of the day participants gathered to attend a discussion given by Mr. Bensouda and a number of other distinguished speakers, touching on topics such as El Jadida's industrial sector, investment opportunities in the El Jadida province, financial products to assist small enterprises in accessing credit.
