These figures indicate a sound tourism industry, he added, noting that the Moroccan tourism industry is one of the most competitive ones in the world.

Indeed, this industry has achieved, between 2000 and 2018, an annual growth of 6 pc, which is 2 points higher than the global growth of the sector, El Fakir said

This makes of Morocco the first African destination and the 30th destination worldwide, he added.
