Tangier, Morocco (TMT)- Renault Group Morocco has decided to suspend, starting from Thursday the 19th of march, the activity of its two production sites of Tangier and Casablanca.

This temporary measure, which applies to nearly 11,000 employees spread over the two plants, comes in the wake of the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic both in the Kingdom and internationally.

A statement from the group said that “some positions, whose physical presence is not essential to the well-functioning of the business, will make use of remote working.”

Renault said that it is “monitoring the situation very closely and stands ready to react quickly to any changes, including the application of new measures introduced by the Moroccan public authorities.”

Renault said it “plans to restart production activities as soon as conditions permit and will implement appropriate measures to respond effectively to customer demand in the Kingdom and on an international scale.”
