Rapprochement Maroc-OHADA

After a return to the African Union and the integration of the West African regional organization (ECOWAS), Morocco now seems to multiply favourable signs for a rapprochement with the OHADA organisation. There is no doubt that the negotiations have recently accelerated without, for now, being publicly mentioned the wish to join. The prospect of Morocco joining the pan-African organization would have immediate effect, without needing any transposition, to make all OHADA legislation, including the law of arbitration, applicable in Morocco. Ad hoc arbitration as much as the institutional arbitration of the CCJA would then find a new area of expression capable to invigorate the practice of arbitration in Moroccan and North Africa. Casablanca has made significant efforts since 2014 to become a recognized place of arbitration, both in Africa and around the world.
