'Financial Times' Enumerate 5 Reasons to Live in Casablanca

British daily "Financial Times" has enumerated five reasons to live in the city of Casablanca which has become "Africa's financial powerhouse".

In an article authored by Simon Brandon, the daily gave the first reason as been "the establishment in 2010 of Casablanca Finance City (CFC), a business hub formed from a public-private partnership, located on the site of a defunct airport."

Secondly, the daily went on to say, "there are tax breaks on offer for financial companies and their employees."

Thirdly, it said that the architecture and culture reflect the city's rich history, in particular the mixture of art deco and Moorish styles.

Fourthly, the daily stressed that Casablanca's restaurant scene is also infused with the city’s multicultural flavor and is developing a bit of a reputation as a destination for foodies.

And finally, it said that Casablanca is a surfers' paradise — so much so that Stab, a surfing magazine, named Casablanca one of the world’s top 10 cities for surfers.
