(ANSAmed) - RABAT, JANUARY 8 - Morocco in 2012 invested 14 billion dirhams (1.26 billion euros) in the tourism sector, creating 4,400 jobs and increasing its bed capacity by 10,300, the Moroccan tourism ministry made known in its yearly budget report.

Morocco last year increased its bed capacity by 7,000 and created 3,000 jobs, maintaining its position on the international market and attracting almost 10 million tourists by November 2012. The ministry also made significant investments in refurbishing training facilities and creating new ones, according to the report.

In 2013, the ministry will focus on developing domestic tourism by breaking ground on the third phase of a new tourism resort at Medhia under the so-called Biladi Plan, which King Mohamed VI launched in September. (ANSAmed).
