Morocco manufacturing sector
Morocco: Manufacturing Sector

We examine how trade liberalisation with EU

and MENA countries impacts on

Moroccan workers

by changing the composition of employment.


Methodology 1
Methodology (1)

Entry

  • POS  Job Creation

    Hiring

    Exit

  • NEG  Job Destruction

    Firing


Methodology 2
Methodology (2)

  • SUM  Turnover = POS + |NEG|

  • NET = POS – NEG

  • EXCESS  Churning

    EXC = Between + Within









Main results review
Main Results: Review

  • Turnover: Permanent Workers < Temporary Workers;

  • Turnover Morocco > Turnover USA and UE;

  • Change in the trend after 1997;

  • Exporters ~ NonExporters in magnitude BUT not in time trend and composition;

  • Turnover: Small > Medium > Large;

  • Turnover in the main sectors is higher than the average value for the whole economy.





Conclusion and further steps
Conclusion and Further Steps

  • The analysis suggests that Turnover is higher among:

    • Temporary Workers,

    • Small Firms,

    • (NO difference among Exporters and NonExporters).

  • Trade Liberalisation increase JR mainly among Temporary Workers.

  • Simultaneous JC and JD within industries, size and Export Status Groups account for the vast majority of total turnover (70% on average)

    Firm heterogeneityis the key issue to understand job

    reallocation in the Moroccan economy.
