Kenitra city

Kenitra is a Moroccan city situated on the Northern Atlantic coastal line. It is 40 km to the north of Rabat city located on the Sebou river and considered as one of the three main cities of Rabat– Sale’- Kenitra’s region. Formerly and specifically in 1912, it was named Port Lyautey after the name of its founder, the French General Louis Hubert Lyautey. Now, Kenitra is the capital city of the Moroccan northern west since it is a rich terrain.
Although it is not as dynamic as the capital city(Rabat), it is regarded as one of the core cities in the Moroccan kingdom since youth and life do strongly exist in each particle. However, it is more spontaneous and a cozy place to be explored.
Kenitra lies on its textile, leather, electronic and para- chemical industries to maintain its economy. Also, it mainly cares for the region’s agricultural capabilities to develop the rate of production. Kenitra is the living earth land that exports all of its goods to most sectors in the kingdom; it is rather the main source of all supplies.
