Al Barid Bank, a subsidiary of Poste Maroc, officially settles in El Guergarat


The announcement was made in November 2021, during the Green March celebrations. But since then nothing concrete has happened. Today, it is a given: Al Barid Bank, a subsidiary of Al Barid Maroc (Poste Maroc), is stepping up the pace to join the public services that have set up at the border crossing of El Guergarat in Moroccan Sahara.

Indeed, Al Barid Bank has just launched a call for tenders for the construction of its site in El Guergarat with the contract to be awarded on May 10, 2022. For its installation in El Guergarat, Al Barid Bank intends to pay some 4.5 million dirhams.

For the past few years, and especially since the operation led by Morocco in November 2020, this border post has experienced unprecedented urban development and modernization. The Moroccan authorities are stepping up their efforts to provide basic services for the benefit of people passing through this passage with Mauritania and, beyond, with sub-Saharan Africa: hotel infrastructure, places of worship, shops, and even the core an industrial and logistics zone.

Al Barid Bank, a subsidiary of Barid Al-Maghrib, was set up in June 2010. Today, Al Barid Bank has a large network, with more than 1800 branches across Morocco.
