Market Report, "Morocco Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Report Q4 2014", published

Published: Thu Nov 06 2014

As Morocco's economic conditions improve towards the end of 2014 and the rate of decline in pharmaceutical sales slows, we hold an overall positive outlook for the market over the medium - to - long term, which will be driven by the growing middle class.
