//personal notes : A defining moment in the Kingdom's energy strategy. What this agency is going to demonstrate is the following : A major asset of Morocco's future development lies in solar energy exploitation and export. Congrats.

Its very important that they move towards tech acquisition or at least set up the framework for fully integrated production units to be set up so as to establish the bases for an industry.
