The aim of this article is to study the impact of human capital on the regional growth between 2000 and 2014, and to identify
the relations linking the Moroccan regions with a view to identify the neighborhood effects on the growth of a region, by an
approach of spatial econometrics.
The obtained spatial analysis results show that GDP per capita differs from one region to another, the existence of a strong
heterogeneity which characterizes the Moroccan regions, as well as the persistence of interregional inequalities in economic
growth, and the concentration of national wealth in some regions more than others.
Keywords: Morocco, region, human capital, regional growth, spatial panel econometrics.
