The former chief executive officer of NIC, Jeffrey Scott Fraser led the company for over 18 years. Now retired, Jeffrey S Fraser enjoys fishing, hunting, and traveling. He has visited many cities around the world, including Casablanca.

The capital city of Morocco, Casablanca has long been a popular tourist destination. As the economic capital of Morocco, the city is a brilliant example of the modern world with its tall buildings, financial institutions, corporate headquarters, and fast food chains lining the streets. As a tourist destination, the historic Moroccan culture is evident in the city’s unique architecture and tasty cuisine served in traditional and modern restaurants.

Casablanca’s perhaps most visible attraction is the iconic Hassan II Mosque. The mosque, one of the largest in the world, can be seen from all corners of the city and features the world’s tallest minaret. Completed in 1993 and designed by Michel Pinseau, the mosque features Islamic art and offers guided tours for the many visitors that come to the mosque each year.
