EL JADIDA, MOROCCO – Morocco’s tourism sector has seen significant recovery during 2013. Statistics from Moroccan Ministry of Tourism show that revenue from the tourism industry crossed 4.37 billion Moroccon dirhams (approximately US $506 million) this January, an increase of 5.9 per cent over the corresponding period last year.
