The region of Fez-Meknes hopes for an integrated, sustainable and inclusive development that serves the entire region. To do so, it must meet several challenges related to strengthening business competitiveness, developing regional innovation, protecting natural resources, reducing territorial and social disparities and enhancing the cultural and historical heritage.

For such comprehensive development, a development vision has been laid out by consolidating current sectors and fostering the emergence of new growth sectors: industry, digital economy, services and the knowledge economy.

This vision has been implemented through the Regional Spatial Planning Scheme (RSPS), a strategic document that sets out the long-term development perspectives (by 2042) with more than 197 projects identified.
