Communication has long been considered in light of social facts, territory and economic development. The techniques and practices it involves gradually cover the regional scope. The examination of this convergence is necessary not only in terms of the empirical approach that framework the appearance and development of information and communication technology, but also in terms of the practices engendered. From this perspective, the ultimate goal of the region, established in Morocco in 1997, is to stimulate its economy in order to create investment opportunities. The regional investment center (RIC), an organization undertaking development at the regional level, has a leading role in networking economic information, thus exerting a direct impact on the mobility of businesses locally.

Key words: Information, communication, region, investment, enterprise.
