Morocco Now

When many of its neighbors fell into chaos during the Arab Spring, Morocco’s monarchy facilitated a new constitution and promised reforms. This still-evolving promise aims for development of new economic sectors while reducing poverty, taming budget deficits, and fighting corruption. Morocco’s government is largely credited with making good progress on their financial initiatives, and the nation is considered one of the most powerful economies in Africa. Tourism is a powerful and growing industry, and aeronautics is growing quickly as well, but there is still work to be done to provide more people access to education, quality drinking water, and good jobs outside of agriculture.

All of this plays out against the backdrop of a rich and authentic historical and cultural experience. As you move from city to city, you’ll have opportunities to learn the history of the many conquerors who’ve done the same. Their art, architecture, and cuisine make each region unique. The variety of topography offers chances to hike, surf, or just relax and enjoy yourself in a nation that offers something for everyone.
