Transcript of Morocco

In my opinion, Morocco's biggest strength is their economy. Because of their close proximity to Europe, they've been able to capitalize on low labor costs, which enables them to sustain a very diverse, market-oriented economy. They have also more recently overcome extreme debt and now have a thriving economy.
Morocco's biggest weakness is their communication. This country only has 2 TV broadcast stations and 3 radio broadcast networks. Many people are not very interested in the use of electronics and internet is also expensive. To fix this, the country can invest in more telephone lines and satellites.
Geography
Location:
Northern Africa
-Pros: Because of its situation being so close to Eastern Europe, there is a good amount of European influence on the country.
-Cons: being so far north, it is very hot and dry in the country.
Shape:
Elongated
-Pros: There is different landscape and climate in the outlier areas of the country.
-Cons: The far western and eastern parts of the country might feel excluded and separate from the central parts of the country.
Boundaries:
Western Sahara, Algeria, Atlantic Ocean, Mediterranean Sea (2,020.5 km)
-Pros: Because the country is bordering the ocean, they bring in tourism which is a good source of income.
-Cons: Because of the close proximity to the ocean, they have access to more resources that other countries want.
Size:
446,550 sq. km
-Pros: Population is more easily managed.
-Cons: Being a small country makes it easily invadable due to its prime location on the water.
Ethnicity
Ethnic Groups:
Arab-Berber- 99%
Other- 1%
Classification:
Multinational (barely)

Pros:
The country does not encounter many ethnic conflicts because there aren't many divisions of ethnicity.

Cons:
There isn't much diversity because of this and the people aren't exposed to other cultures.
GDP:
$180 billion
Labor Force (by occupation):
-Agriculture: 44.6%
-Industry: 19.8 %
-Services: 35.5%
Morocco is in stage 4 of the demographic transition model
because of a low birth rate and low death rate. Also,they have a reliable food supply and good health care.
Urban Population:
57% of total population
Rate Of Urbanization:
1.62% annual rate of change
Problems:
The rate of urbanization is slightly higher than
other stage 4 countries, but not by much. There really isn't too much problem associated with this.
Morocco

Block 3
Religion
Total Population:
32,987,206
Population Growth Rate:
1.02%
-This means that the population will
continue to grow by one percent
each year if this number stays consistent.
Age Structure:
0-14: 26.7% (male- 4,479,676/female- 4,342,605)
15-24: 17.7% (male-2,899,041/female- 2,931,856)
25-54: 42% (male- 6,693.877/female- 7,146,696)
55-64: 7.3% (male- 1,200,733/female-1,203,447)
65+: 6.3% (male- 940,291/female-1,148,984)
Dependency Ratios:
Total Dependency Ratio: 49.1%
Youth Dependency Ratio: 41.6 %
Elderly Dependency Ratio: 7.5%
Potential Support Ratio: 13.4%
The total dependency ratio is almost 50%, which is fairly low
compared to other countries. This means that in the future,
there will be a much higher elderly dependency ratio because
of the high youth one now.
Population
Economy
Religious Groups:
Muslim- 99% (mostly Sunni, <1% Shia)
Other- 1% (Christianity, Jewish, Baha'i)
Problems:
The other religious groups are not as prevelant
as Islam, therefore they might feel less important and less
supported by the government.
