External Debt in Morocco

Morocco External Debt | Economic News & Forecasts

Morocco - External Debt

Annual GDP growth weakened in Q1 2022. Drought conditions drove a 12.1% contraction in the agricultural sector. Rising inflation due to higher commodity prices arising from the war in Ukraine, a reduction in agricultural employment, lower agricultural income and slower growth in remittances combined to undermine private consumption, while rising commodity prices led to a widening of the trade deficit. More positively, the lifting of a flight ban in February boosted tourism, while a receding Covid-19 wave buoyed the services sector. Activity is set to improve during Q2, as Covid-19 restrictions are relaxed and recent rains bring some relief to farmers. However, with much of the harvest already lost, this sector will remain a drag on growth. Elevated commodity prices will continue to put pressure on the purchasing power of consumers, as well as the external and fiscal balances.
