Thinking about investing in the fishing industry in Morocco with brother in law. But my brother in law told me that Morocco will not allow me to own the majority of a Moroccan business I am a foreigner. I will pay to see the law regarding foreigners, I am not convinced the Moroccan government prevents foreigners from creating business and presiding as the majority owner. I was told that even if I put up all the capital that I would only be allowed to own 49 percent of the business since I am not Moroccan. I want to find out what the government states, the government statues, to make sure my brother in law is not lying to me to get me create a contract that makes him the majority owner of a business that I fully finance.
