Plans were reportedly approved for the construction of the port that is expected to be finished within seven years

Government officials from Morocco have reportedly been granted permission to build a port worth $1bn in Dakhla, with its tender expected to be issued by the fourth quarter of 2019 and project completion due in seven years.

Morocco's cabinet reportedly approved plans to create a department that would oversee the port's construction, according to Thomson Reuters, citing a Hespress report quoting cabinet minister Mustafa Al-Khalfi. 

Al-Khalfi reportedly added that the project was part of Morocco's strategy to expand port activity by 2030.
