With a liberal economy, Morocco has become a major player in the African economic affairs and is the 5th African economy by GDP. Several years ago Morocco was ranked as the 2nd most competitive economy in North Africa after Tunisia

The Moroccan economy is much more robust than just a few years ago and growth is far more diversified, with new service and industrial poles developing.  The country’s services sector accounts for just over 50% of GDP and the sector is made up of industry, mining, construction and manufacturing.

A few years back Morocco was ranked among the top thirty countries in the offshoring sector. In the Arab world, Morocco has the second-largest non-oil GDP, behind Egypt, as of 2005.
