Region: Casablanca Settat
The discoveries and revelations that excursions in this region supply, as well as the exploration of nature and Berber culture, are breath-taking: spectacular landscapes, lifestyles, architecture, crafts, friendships.
The region of Casablanca-Settat, in the centre west of the country, is the most populated province with 6,861,739 inhabitants in 2014, or 20% of the national population in an area of 1,615km². It is bordered to the northwest by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the Marrakech-Safi region and to the east by Beni Mellal-Khenifra.
Called the mega-region because of its economic importance, the Casablanca-Settat region benefits from port, airport, rail and road infrastructure which facilitates the movement of goods and people.
The port of Casablanca accounts for no less than 40% of foreign trade and its Mohammed V airport has 40% of the country’s aircraft movements with 51% of its passengers.
It replaced the former region of Grand Casablanca by incorporating the provinces of El Jadida and Sidi Bennour from the former region of Doukkala-Abda as well as the provinces of Settat, Benslimane and Berrechid from the former region of Chaouia-Ouardigha.
