The Morocco country diagnostic is part of a series of country diagnostics in selected African countries, in implementation of the Platform for Remittances, Investments and Migrants’ Entrepreneurship in Africa (PRIME Africa) initiative. The diagnostic series can be downloaded on the RemitSCOPE web portal.
The main objectives of the study are to:
• to reduce remittance costs to Morocco in support of the SDG 10.c and the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration;
• to reduce the use of informal remittance channels to Morocco;
• to enhance financial inclusion through associated financial services; and
• to promote digitalization within the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This diagnostic is a working document that will be updated and amended as additional information is collected and assessed. Currently, the report provides an assessment of the remittances market in Morocco. It will be consolidated soon with insights into three specific send market corridors to Morocco, including demand-side research for Germany, France and Italy.
