The industrial development of a country influences its extent of national economic integration as well as in global value chains. This study aims at verifying the relevance of Kaldor's laws in Morocco for the 1980–2016 period, using economic growth and manufacturing sector data. The results of estimating an autoregressive distributed lags error correction model and a simple linear model suggest that a 1% change in manufacturing value added leads to a 0.3% increase in Moroccan gross domestic product, 0.49% in manufacturing employment and 0.51% in manufacturing labor productivity.
