The sector faced the difficult global context and achieved 9.43 million arrivals through November 2015 (a 0.9pc decline compared to the same period of 2014) and 54.6 billion dirhams in travel receipts (-0.9 pc), underlined the minister who was the guest of MAP weekly forum.

The Minister noted, moreover, a decline of 6.6 pc of overnight stays in hotels, which reached 17.1 million at the end of November.
