Morocco’s economic growth to slow to 2.7 pct in Q4- planning agency

RABAT (Reuters) - Morocco’s economic growth is expected to have dipped to 2.7 percent in the fourth quarter of 2018 from 3 percent the previous quarter, the planning agency said on Wednesday, citing a slowdown in non-agricultural activity.

Growth is seen falling to 2.5 percent in the first quarter of 2019 as the agency expects a lower agricultural output.
