Morocco recently launched a major privatization programme. The constraints to getting that programme underway and its anticipated impacts may provide useful insights into the nature of the privatization environment. The first section reviews the setting for Morocco’s privatization law; the second section surveys the mechanisms of privatization; the third section examines the privatizables; the fourth section examines special circumstances which mark Morocco’s privatization; the fifth section looks at constraints to the current programme; and the sixth section examines its expected impacts.
