Morocco uses a borderline with Europe and relatively low labor costs to build a diversified, open, market-oriented economy.

Key sectors of the economy include agriculture, tourism, aerospace, automotive, phosphates, textiles, apparel, and subcomponents.

Morocco has increased investment in its port, transportation, and industrial infrastructure to position itself as a center and broker for business throughout Africa. Industrial development strategies and infrastructure improvements - most visibly illustrated by a new port and free trade zone near Tangier - are improving Morocco's competitiveness.

In the 1980s, Morocco was a heavily indebted country before pursuing austerity measures and pro-market reforms, overseen by the IMF. Since taking the throne in 1999, King MOHAMMED VI has presided over a stable economy marked by steady growth, low inflation, and gradually falling unemployment, although poor harvests and economic difficulties in Europe contributed to an economic slowdown.

To boost exports, Morocco entered into a bilateral Free Trade Agreement with the US in 2006 and an Advanced Status agreement with the EU in 2008. In late 2014, Morocco eliminated subsidies for gasoline, diesel, and fuel oil, dramatically reducing outlays that weighed on the country’s budget and current account. Subsidies on butane gas and certain food products remain in place. Morocco also seeks to expand its renewable energy capacity with a goal of making renewable more than 50% of installed electricity generation capacity by 2030.

The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in Morocco was worth 118.50 billion US dollars in 2018. The GDP value of Morocco represents 0.19 percent of the world economy. GDP in Morocco averaged 38.11 USD Billion from 1960 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 118.50 USD Billion in 2018 and a record low of 2.03 USD Billion in 1961.

In 2017, Morocco exported $24.9B and imported $37.4B, resulting in a negative trade balance of $12.5B. In 2017 the GDP of Morocco was $109B and its GDP per capita was $8.22k.
