The gross domestic product of Morocco advanced 2.1% from a year earlier in the third quarter of 2019, following a downwardly revised 2.2% growth in the previous period. It was the slowest expansion since the last quarter of 2016, as agricultural activity continued to shrink markedly (-5.3% vs -5.4% in Q2), mainly due to the lingering effects of drought on cereal crops such as wheat. In addition, the non-agricultural sector expanded at a slower pace (3% vs 3.3%), hampered by fisheries (-1.3% vs 5.1%); manufacturing (1.9% vs 2.5%); utilities (11.3% vs 20.9%); internal trade (2.9% vs 3.3%); finance & insurance (1.2% vs 2.9%) and business services (3.8% vs 4%). In contrast, growth quickened in construction (1.3% vs 1.2%); transportation (3.2% vs 2.9%); post & telecommunications (1.9% vs 1.5%); public administration (4.4% vs 3.6%) and education, health & social care (1.6% vs 0.6%).
