Call for Paper : Croissance économique au Maroc : théories, évidences, et leçons des expériences récentes

Economic Growth in Morocco: Theories, Evidence and Lessons Learnt From Recent Experiences

L’économie marocaine a enregistré durant la décennie 2000 des taux de croissance assez soutenue de l’ordre de 5% en moyenne, contre près de 3% durant la décennie précédente. Ce passage éventuel vers un nouveau palier s’est accompagné par une relative atténuation de la dépendance de l’économie nationale vis-à-vis de la production agricole et in fine des aléas climatiques. Toutefois, la crise financière 2008-2009, bien que son impact sur l’économie nationale ne fût pas instantané, a vraisemblablement eu des effets négatifs sur la capacité d’offre du pays en présence de signes de ralentissement de la production tendancielle et fait ressortir les limites de la stratégie de croissance, axée sur l’expansion de la demande intérieure, sous l’impulsion d’un taux d’investissement public élevé et d’une progression soutenue des salaires.

Green Revolution in Vietnam and Lessons Learned for the African Countries

For over the past 30 years of economic reforms (Doi moi), Vietnam has gained major achievement in agricultural development. Thanks to the liberalization policy, from a net food-imported country, Vietnam has become among the top exporters of many agricultural products such as rice, coffee, pepper, etc. Millions of people in the rural areas have been lifted out of chronicle poverty and hunger. The face of the rural areas has been progressively changed. Vietnam’s successful efforts in hunger eradication and poverty alleviation were highly appreciated by the donor community, including the development organizations such as the World Bank, Asian Development Bank, and the United Nations Development Program.

Trump and Trade

OCP Policy Center, Rabat

While the first months of 2017 in Morocco were characterized by the country’s historic diplomatic feat in re-joining the African Union, and its positive willingness of integrating the Economic Community of Western African States (ECOWAS), it is safe to say that the atmosphere was quite different in the Northern hemisphere. For both the European Union and the US, 2016 has proven to be a grim year, particularly in light of the populist wave that swept through the West. This has led the UK to opt for Brexit, a situation that has come as a surprise to the international community, and Americans to vote for a businessman as their 45th president. Donald J. Trump, the said businessman, has no previous political experience, and ran a controversial campaign that places protectionism at the heart of his economic strategy. This, in conjunction with the general leitmotif of making America great again, will make for a dangerous rollercoaster ride in the land of uncertainty.
