Following this meeting, the board of directors of the IMF expressed its support for the program of reforms undertaken by Morocco and considers that the economic policy pursued by our country is sound and that its economic fundamentals are solid.

They also encouraged our country to pursue the structural reforms necessary to boost the level of potential growth, lower unemployment among the youth, increase female labor participation, and reduce regional disparities.
