Saudi and Qatari companies participated in the forum to find out about the investment opportunities already available in the areas of renewable energy, agriculture, tourism and the food industry. During the meeting, several workshops were held on various areas, such as energy. The Energy Development Investment Fund has contributions from Saudi Arabia ($500 million), the United Arab Emirates ($300 million) and Morocco ($200 million). This fund aims to contribute to the development of energy in large-scale projects within the Moroccan framework to exploit solar and wind energy in order to produce electricity locally. The energy sector in Morocco is one of the sectors in which the Gulf countries are investing heavily.
