Morocco: From Islamic Monarchy to Emerging Economic Power

Morocco’s history is fascinating. Despite its location in North Africa, Morocco has fought off invasions for centuries, even while serving as the gathering place for competing militaries.

By the end of the 17th century, Morocco was established as an Islamic monarchy. In the early part of the 1800s, the Moroccan government had considerable tensions with Spain, fighting over disputed territory.

Eventually, Morocco had no choice but to ask France to help, and in 1912, the country became a French protectorate. This protectorate lasted until 1956 when the sultan of Morocco officially declared independence.

Like many developing countries in Africa, Morocco relies heavily on the export of raw materials. After recently liberalizing its economy, as of 2020, Morocco has a gross domestic product (GDP) of 112.87 billion USD, putting it at 59th in the world.

Morocco’s major cities are Casablanca, Fez, Tangier, Marrakesh, and Sale. Its capital is Rabat. The official languages of Morocco are Standard Arabic and Tamazight, while the spoken vernacular is Moroccan Arabic.

The Moroccan diaspora is extensive, with about 5 million Moroccans living in other countries. It has one of the largest immigrant groups in Europe, with most living in France, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany.
