Key developments and challenges

  • Economic activity slowed in the first quarter of 2014 after registering strong output growth in 2013, on the back of contracting agricultural production and a weaker non-agricultural output. Meanwhile, fiscal and external pressures have eased in 2013, as the authorities have taken steps to reduce vulnerabilities and rebuild policy space, while adhering to a programme of fiscal consolidation.

  • Meanwhile, Morocco has obtained a new two-year IMF Precautionary and Liquidity Line (PLL) for US$5 billion. This follows the successful completion of the last review under the US$6.2 PLL signed in August 2012, where the authorities had not drawn on that amount, treating the PLL as precautionary.

  • The implementation of the decentralization plans remains slow in view of the complexity of the reform. An organic law detailing the transfer of decision-making power to the regions is expected to be developed. However, the limited capacity at the level of regional administrations will be a challenge.
