The Moroccan community in Saudi Arabia is estimated at more than 50,000 people. The community is mainly made up of laborers, those in the liberal professions, spouses of Saudi nationals, and executives. For 89 percent of Moroccans living in Saudi Arabia, buying property in Morocco is “very important,” the show’s website says.
Moroccans living overseas send home an estimated MAD 5 billion per year.
