Morocco Going Digital, ‘CasaStore’ Launches Mobile App

Published

on

The economic capital of Morocco is going digital. And a web platform “CasaStore” is among those leading with its launch of its mobile application to facilitate usage and bring its services closer to mobile phone users.

CasaStore allows the collection of various digital apps related to Morocco’s economic capital, Casablanca.

The CasaStore platform is considered one of the top technological solutions that the local development company “Casa Services” created amid the city’s digital transformation. Particularly, as more people use their gadgets 24/7.

Casa Services is an initiative that local communities in Casablanca established in 2014. The services company is in charge of development, management, control, monitoring, and evaluation of the local and public services through its assigned projects.

Among the business units Casa Services is responsible for are the slaughterhouses in Casablanca, the wholesale market for fruits and vegetables, as well as Casablanca’s digital transformation project, communication, and communal police administration.

The main objective for creating CasaStore is to make the platform the ideal tool to facilitate communication between Casablanca’s public administrations and the city’s software professional developers.

One of the goals is to enrich the platform and the work of the professional program and app developers.

The platform allows professionals to share their opinions and proposals concerning the new technologies in Casablanca, in addition to offering apps and other innovations aiming to make life easier — and more digitized — for Casablanca residents.

But the digital platform does not aim to be the sole preserve of tech professionals. It also gives the opportunity to citizens who are not necessarily well-versed in new technologies and software to share their thoughts, proposals, and concerns regarding ways to develop Casablanca.

S/Africa’s Financial Stability Threatened By High Govt Debts – SARB

Published

on

The South African Reserve Bank (SARB) has warned the government against incurring high public debts to save its financial system.

The central bank said high debts are a precursor to a potential collapse of the financial system.

South Africa’s debts amount to 84% of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) as the economy battles the dire effects of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

In its bi-annual review of the nation’s financial soundness, the apex bank in the country said a close affiliation between the financial sector and the government has become risky.

The document said “the interconnectedness between the financial sector and the sovereign has emerged as a major threat to financial stability in South Africa,”

South Africa in March announced its second recession in two years as President Cyril Ramaphosa faces more pressure to put the country’s flailing economy on a solid pedestal.

The President’s policies have been put under the spotlight in recent months as the nation struggles to come out of a hard-biting recession and a pandemic.

The SARB said in September that a GDP contraction of -8.2% is expected in the third quarter of 2020, as against earlier projections of -7.3%.
