Abstract

This article examines the impacts of the initial industrial structure of Moroccan provinces on their economic growth between 1985 and 1999 using a panel data model dealing with heterogeneous parameters. Results show the importance of both specialization (MAR externalities) and diversity (Jacob externalities). They also highlight a certain tendency of semi-peripheral provinces, which attract low-technology industries and clothing, to catch up with the central region (the Metropolitan Area of Grand Casablanca) which is directed towards medium-technology industries.
