Moroccan remittances

Morocco has about five millions Moroccans working abroad ,most of them are in Europe (about80%),
They generate every year about six billion dollars (58 billion dirham 2013),40% of this sum comes from France ,10% from Italy ,the rest from other European countries ,usa ,Canada and golf countries.
This huge sum of money is a godsend for Moroccan government ,because it is used to clog the gap of deficit in Moroccan budget every year since 1980’s.
As the lazy Moroccan government doesn’t have an industry ,doesn’t spend more than 1% of GDP in scientific research ,it will stay completely dependant on Moroccans’ remittances to tackle deficit and aerate its budget .
