Summary:

The macroeconomic environment is sound, with low inflation and a comfortable external position, although the fiscal position remains a concern for the medium term. The authorities have successfully privatized and liberalized the telecommunications, energy, and transportation sectors. Moreover, Morocco has significantly liberalized its trade regime and strengthened its financial sector. These reforms have enhanced the overall productivity of the economy and heightened its resilience to shocks. The medium-term outlook is favorable. The government debt-to-GDP ratio has declined steadily since the turn of the century.
