Morocco - Country Assistance Strategy (Inglês)

In 1983 Morocco initiated an extensive adjustment and stabilization program assisted by the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, resulting in downward spiraling budget and current account deficits as well as a substantial growth in output and rapidly expanding exports triggering a per capita income rise. Key structural adjustments made to transform the economy from state-controlled to market-oriented included introducing a value-added tax and a general income tax; reducing protections and relaxing regulated prices; initiating a successful privatization program; and streamlining the business environment. However, the recent slowdown, due partly to severe droughts particularly effecting the rural regions, a sluggish European economy - Morocco's chief market-and partly to insufficient diversification, has exposed persistent structural weaknesses and has almost reversed the gains made in economic performance and in poverty reduction. In the short term, Morocco will have to establish a firm base for sustaining improvement in economic performance while it reduces social disparities and strengthens political consensus. The Country Assistance Strategy (CAS) identifies medium-term priorities as enhancing competitiveness and fostering a more dynamic private sector; deepening financial consolidation; focusing on human resource development; implementing a coherent rural development strategy; improving natural resource management, particularly for water; and building a more effective and efficient public administration. The CAS outlines the financial resources the Bank proposes to make available as well as its non-lending services aimed at fostering community participation, supporting private investment, and institution building. Portfolio management and donor coordination are other assistance strategies the Bank will employ to stabilize the Bank's exposure while increasing quick-disbursing support. The strategy's success will be tagged to substantial progress achieved in articulating and implementing the economic and social reforms identified.
