The Chinese people in Morocco are a small community of recent origin and engaged mostly in wholesale trading and retail.
The Chinese merchants have turned Derb Omar, one of Casablanca's largest commercial districts, into a hub where a Chinatown has emerged. In this district, the merchants run small retail shops which are often subdivisions of a narrow storefront. A US diplomat who visited the area to report on Chinese economic activities in Morocco noted "lower-income earners appreciate the ability that Chinese imports give them to buy previously-unattainable goods cheaply."
