The growth was supported by a strong external demand, the HCP added in an information note, adding that domestic demand was weak in 2015.

Morocco’s economic growth is also the result of a growth in agricultural value added (+12.8 percent), the source noted.

Non-agricultural activities increased by 1.9 percent in 2015 against 2.5 percent a year earlier, the source pointed out.

The evolution is also due to the increase by 6 percent in exports and the drop by 3.1 percent in imports, the source pointed out.
