About Morocco

Morocco is in the far west of North Africa, its capital is Rabat, while its largest city Casablanca is considered the economic capital. The Moroccan economy is a service par excellence, as the service added value represented 54.9% of the total output. Although the agricultural sector operates for 40% of the active population, the primary sector contributes only 16.6% of the GDP, and it forms grains, vegetables, fruits and products.
