    (ANSAmed) - RABAT, APRIL 30 - Morocco has become the most popular tourist destination in North Africa, according to an online survey conducted by the London-based Tourism Review.

    Its political and socio-economic stability seem to be the aspects that lead potential visitors to choose it over other over countries in the region. Morocco's tourism sector accounted for 8.6% of GDP in 2013 (9.5 billion dollars), and revenue is expected to rose by 8.1% in 2014. Tourism Review reports that the 2014 summer season is expected to be catastrophic for Egypt, mediocre for Tunisia and good for Morocco. The Moroccan national tourism bureau ONMT has said that over 11 million foreign tourists are expected to visit the country in 2014, spurring an increase in lodging facilities, flights to the country and partnerships with large international tour operators.
