The Report: Morocco 2018

Morocco has long been recognised as one of the most advanced nations in Africa due to its strategic location and sizeable diaspora community, as well as its well-developed manufacturing sector, mining industry and agricultural output.

Morocco’s economy is diversified, particularly relative to many other countries in the MENA region. Both the agricultural and the tourism sectors are major contributors to economy, with the former generating 40% of the employment and the latter accounting for roughly 8% of GDP. Manufacturing industries, including textiles, automotive and aeronautics, are also highly developed. In addition, the kingdom’s ICT sector has seen significant expansion, creating new employment opportunities, while investment in transport and infrastructure, and the establishment of a free trade zone, have boosted competitiveness.
