    La Banque Mondiale au Maroc : Bilan d'une décennie d'actions

    Par Ahmed Ouhnini et Ferid Belhaj, Vice-président de la Banque Mondiale pour la région MENA

    Dans ce podcast, avec monsieur Ferid Belhaj, Vice-président de la Banque Mondiale pour la région MENA, nous abordons les conclusions d'une évaluation indépendante sur le soutien de la Banque mondiale au Royaume du Maroc et ses implications pour le Nouveau Modèle de Développement. L'évaluation identifie les obstacles au développement, notamment les réformes politiques et économiques, qui ont été surmontés grâce au soutien financier et stratégique de la Banque mondiale. De plus, l'utilisation des données a influencé ces réformes, en mettant particulièrement l'accent sur la cohérence des politiques et l'amélioration du climat des affaires. Malgré les défis actuels, il est essentiel de souligner que la collaboration continue entre la Banque mondiale et le Maroc demeure indispensable pour atteindre les objectifs ambitieux de développement durable dans les années à venir.

    Dynamiques et mutations de la méditerranée

    Par Abdessalam Jaldi & Hakim El Karoui

    Le bassin méditerranéen concentre dans son espace restreint tous les enjeux et des défis de la mondialisation et est confronté à l’ensemble des risques qui en découlent. Frappée par le déplacement du centre de la gravité mondiale de l’espace atlantique vers l’espace indopacifique, le pourtour méditerranéen demeure un espace économique et géopolitique qui concentre les rivalités et les jeux d’alliances, ainsi qu’un concentré des préoccupations présentes et à venir à l’échelle du monde. Nous avons posé la question à Hakim El Karoui, Founding partner – VOLENTIA.

    Financialization and increased economic fragility

    Financialization and increased economic fragility

    by Mahmoud Arbouch and Hung Q Tran, Senior Fellow, Atlantic Council

    Since the 1980s, financial activities and assets have gained significant prominence in the global economy, surpassing the growth rate of underlying economic activity measured by global GDP. This disparity has led to an expanding gap between financial activity and the real economy, increasing susceptibility to financial instability. Economies have become reliant on governmental fiscal and monetary support, but governments face challenges due to high debt, interest rates, and expanded central bank balance sheets. This situation has left us in unknown territory, where the looming threat of a financial crisis, coupled with governments' limited capacity to respond effectively, represents the most significant risk to the global economy at present.
