The free market system has prevailed in the Tangiers International Zone since ancient times. Therefore, its economic system depends largely on various smuggling operations such as arms smuggling operations, and also depends on services, banks, real estate and trade, and many of its members work in import and export, loading and unloading and a good number of marine services.

The port of the region occupies a great importance in the growth of the economy; Because it contributes to the distinctiveness of the region at the entrance to the Mediterranean, which led to the recovery of the region and the increase in the proportion of tourists and visitors there, as well as the emergence of many factories and industries that have contributed significantly to the economic growth of the region due to the low wages of workers and the low customs prices and taxes imposed on buildings, factories and land .

Inhabitants of Tangiers International

The city is inhabited by people of different religions, races and cultures, so the indigenous and local people described the Tangiers International Zone as a plague-affected area; Because the ideas of its residents are multiple, and some infidels and atheists spread in it.

  • Foreigners who belong to the signatory countries and agree to the agreement of the following countries: Germany, Austria, Hungary and Poland, and this section was able to control the economy and ownership of companies, banks and various offices because they represent the majority of Parliament, knowing that their official religion is Christianity or Judaism and a few of them converted to Islam after get to know them.
  • Moroccans who belong to Arab and Berber origins and most of them condemn the Islamic religion. This section suffered the most because of the difficult conditions of the Moroccan Arab Republic, so they worked in simple activities such as house service, trade and many other small trades, and their representation in Parliament was meager and unfair.
