Casablanca (Arabic: الدار البيضاء, ed-Dar el-Beida, Berber: ⴰⵏⴼⴰ, Anfa, literally meaning hill) is a city in western Morocco. It is the largest city in Morocco in terms of population and the economic heart of the country. Casablanca literally means white house in Spanish. The city almost coincides with the eponymous prefecture of Casablanca, part of the Grand Casablanca region. The city of Casablanca has over 4 million inhabitants, making it the largest city in Morocco. It is also the country's main port, located on the Atlantic Ocean.

Since its completion in 1993, Casablanca is home to the Hassan II Mosque, a modern grand mosque built by order of King Hassan II located on Bd Sidi Mohammed Ben Abdallah, between the harbor and the El-Hank lighthouse on the coast with views over the Atlantic Ocean. Close to the mosque is also the old medina. Economy

The Greater Casablanca region is seen as the engine of the development of the Moroccan economy. It is responsible for 39% of the national production and 60% of the industrial workforce. The region consumes 35% of the national electricity production. With MAD 86 billion, the region accounts for 54% of industrial production. 41% of the country's industrial exports come from the Greater Casablanca region. 30% of the Moroccan banking sector is located in Casablanca. For decades, Casablanca has developed into a larger metropolis. This is partly due to the construction of many office buildings and a larger harbour. The activities of the Casablanca and Mohammedia ports account for 55% of Moroccan international trade. 48% of passenger transport in Morocco passes through Casablanca Mohammed V International Airport.[3]

The population of Greater Casablanca is estimated at over 4.2 million (2014). 98% of them live in urban areas. 25% are under 15 years old and 8.7% are over 60 years old. The city's population is about 12% of Morocco's total population. Greater Casablanca is also the largest urban area in the Maghreb. The population consists of three main ethnic groups. The most important group is that of the 'Roubie, descendants of Arab nomadic tribes, who settled in this area in the 13th century. The second important group are the Swassa, Berbers from the Agadir area. A third and smallest group are the Fessies. The last two groups traditionally belong to the economically upper class of Casablanca and all of Morocco.
