Collection and dissemination of statistical data

Start date  April 2009  End date December 2012

Ministry of Industry, Trade, Investment and the Digital Economy


The collection and dissemination of statistical data in Morocco suffers from many problems:

  • The shortage of national indicators,
  • Redundancy in collecting data and producing statistics,
  • The lack of national coordination between the concerned actors.

To correct this, the Ministry of Industry, Trade, Investment and the Digital Economy has introduced a national observatory covering the area of ICT initially, followed by those of industry and trade.

This observatory centre will federate the monitoring centres and periodic investigative work carried out by the different socio-economic partners throughout the country.


In the area of IT, the project aims to implement:

  •     a back-office open to partners providing statistical data
  •     a portal for consulting statistical data and making online queries

In parallel with the IT component, the project will integrate 4 other components: Human Resources, General Resources, Ecosystems and Communication.


Expected benefits

  •     To be a reference for information on the ICT sector for administrations, companies and citizens
  •     To improve communications with institutions and organisations
  •     To have a monitoring unit and publishing of field experience reports
