Morocco is among the 20 most attractive emerging countries for investment, according to the Foreign Direct Investment Confidence Index 2023 (FDICI) published by the American strategy consulting firm AT Kearney.
The Kingdom ranks 16th among emerging countries that most attract investors, ahead of South Africa (17th) and behind Egypt (14th), indicates the FDICI, the global foreign direct investment confidence index, which reports the continued optimism of investors despite the risks linked in particular to the rise in commodity prices and heightened geopolitical tensions. According to the Kearney report, the first three positions in the ranking of emerging countries go to China, India and the United Arab Emirates.
When it comes to developed countries, the United States, Canada and Japan occupy the top three spots, says the Chicago-based consultancy. This is the first time in 25 years that the Foreign Direct Investment Confidence Index has published an exclusive ranking of emerging markets.
According to the report, more than three-quarters (82%) of investors said they planned to increase their FDI over the next three years, a slight increase from 76% last year. Additionally, 87% cited FDI as the most important means to improve their company’s profitability and competitiveness over the next three years, up slightly from 83% in 2022.
Investors’ outlook for the global economy was generally in line with last year’s results. While levels of pessimism rose slightly from 32% to 35%, almost two-thirds of investors (63%) remained more optimistic about the health of the global economy, the same level as in 2022.
