Economic Investment by Moroccan Nationals Abroad in the Small Towns of Souss

Migrations in the Souss are characterized by their diversity and their historical origin. These are migrations oriented for several centuries towards foreign countries and the interior of the country. Domestically, the chleuhs (Soussis) are present in the various towns as traders. As for external emigration, they (the Soussis) have been moving for a very long time towards Sudan (Sub-Saharan Africa); and at the beginning of the 20th century, they were attracted by agricultural colonization in Algeria. But the most important movement of the Soussis abroad is that which is oriented towards Europe since the establishment of the French Protectorate in Morocco from 1912.
