Economic performance and outlook

At 2.9%, real GDP growth in 2019 continued to decelerate. Water stress limited the performance of the agricultural sector, which involves about 46% of the active population. And growth was slow in the eurozone (76% of Morocco’s trade). But since 2013, there has been greater impetus in diversifying exports in global value chains—automobiles (up 13%), agrifood (8.2%), aviation (10.1%), and electronics (6%).
