Rabat- The Irish news website Independent has recently published a news story which compares Morocco’s global gross domestic product to the wealth of Ireland’s richest 300 in 2014.
This week, the Independent published a list of wealthy Irish citizens. The Irish independent said Ireland’s 300 wealthiest people “are now worth more than the entire economy of Morocco.”
The wealthy elite have net assets of €70.74bn this year, while Morocco’s Global Domestic Product is estimated at €69.25bn.
Forbes magazine published an article last November in which it highlighted that three Moroccans are among Africa’s 50 billionaires.
The list of Moroccan billionaires is led by Outmane Benjelloun with a net worth of worth of $2.8 billion. He is followed by Miloud Chaabi, with $1.9 billion, Minister of Agriculture Aziz Akhannouch, with an estimated $1.4 billion fortune and Anas Sefrioui with $1.3 billion.
