Education & Research

Morocco Education & Research

Considerable advances have been made in increasing enrolment levels, with net primary school enrolment reaching 98% in 2013, up from 85% in 2003, although challenges remain in ensuring adequate access to education in rural areas. The government has worked to improve infrastructure through the rehabilitation of schools and the involvement of the private sector. An emphasis on vocational training is expected to help match graduates’ skills with the demands of the labour market, reducing high rates of youth unemployment, while another major focus over the coming years will be to increase scientific research output at Moroccan universities.

This chapter contains interviews with Lahcen Daoudi, Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research; and Tarafa Marouane, Chairman, Commission of Research and Development, General Confederation of Moroccan Companies.
