Tourism at National Level

As an archetypal locomotive of African tourism, Morocco never missed to attract visitors thanks to its cultural and architectural legacy, its broad variety and beauty of beaches and natural sites, its cuisine, security and hospitality.

Contributing to more than 7% of the GDP and employing 5% of the active population, tourism is at the origin of a deep socio-economic dynamic generating growth, foreign exchange, diversification and competitiveness.

Sectorial Strategy

Since 2000, the Kingdom was able to establish and implement a development strategy for tourism (2010 and 2020 visions) aiming to position the sector as one of its development engines.

A 2023-2026 roadmap has been implemented to transform the tourism sector by addressing key areas such as a new customer-centric approach, diversification of cultural and leisure offerings, upgrading of existing hotel infrastructure, creation of new hotel capacity, and investment in human capital development, with the goal of seeing Morocco become one of the world's top ten most admired destinations.

This ambitious strategy, which has a 6.1 billion DH overall budget, seeks to produce various spin-off effects by 2026, including luring 17.5 million tourists, earning 120 billion DH in foreign currency, and creating 200,000 new direct and indirect jobs.
