Tourismuspolitik in Marokko: ein großer Wurf für wirtschaftliche Entwicklung?
[Tourism policy in Morocco: a great effort for economic development?]
AbstractRecent political transformations in Arab countries suggest that solutions have to be found for the problem of lacking economic prospects and particularly of high youth unemployment. Such solutions have to consist of economic growth that unfolds widespread employment effects. A tourism policy that opens up perspectives for employment to people in many parts of a country can contribute to such a solution. This is even more the case because of tourism's high labour intensity and the physical assets of Arab countries and in particular of the northern African mediterranean countries. Morocco can serve as an example as to what degree tourism policy can live up to these high expectations.
