Morocco Economy

Despite the kingdom’s dependence on agriculture for strong GDP growth, efforts to strengthen other export sectors, coupled with diversification of trading partners, have allowed Morocco to develop a variety of competitive industries and increase their presence in international markets. Traditional segments such as phosphate production remain important, but a range of emerging manufacturing capabilities are helping to promote growth across a broader base of activities. Morocco has seen a recent influx of investment that has been translated into various projects, such as new industrial and infrastructure developments. With an emphasis on diversifying its commercial partners, Morocco’s African strategy has been raising the kingdom´s political and economic profile, and extending its clout across the continent.

This chapter contains interviews with Mohamed Boussaid, Minister of Economy and Finance; and Ahmed Lahlimi Alami, High Commissioner, High Commission for Planning.
