Morocco's tourism challenges

Tourism is a key source of income for Morocco, but it also brings challenges.

Tourism is a key source of income for Morocco, but it also brings challenges. Our reporter Matthew Davies takes a tour of the old souk in Marrakesh, and asks whether you can sometimes have too much of a good thing. Morocco's secretary of state for tourism Lamia Boutaleb tells us about the problems the collapse of British tour operator Thomas Cook has caused for hotels and other travel businesses. And we get wider context from Kamil Ennadifi, general manager of the Selman Hotel in Marrakesh, and Hamid Bentahar, vice president for Morocco at the international hotel chain Accor. Plus our reporter Nora Fakim has been finding out whether an influx of foreign buyers in local property markets in Morocco is squeezing out Moroccan nationals.
