This paper examines the various effects of Morocco’s balance of trade and other economic factors on the exchange rate of the Moroccan Dirham (MAD) with respect to the American Dollar (USD). An annual time series data was collected from 1960 to 2018 from the World Bank Data Group concerning exports, imports, &nbsp;gross domestic product (GDP), inflation, and the official exchange rate. Johansen co-integration test, &nbsp;vector autoregressive (VAR) &nbsp;model, Vector error corrective model (VECM), and Granger Causality were applied to test the significance and impact of variables related to the trade balance and economic factors. Results revealed a cointegration association between the variables. This association is exhibited on both the short-run and the long-run. Only inflation displayed an association with the exchange rate on the short run. On the other hand, exports, imports, and GDP appeared to be cointegrated with the exchange rate on the long run. Unlike the trade balance components, GDP and inflation appeared to Granger-cause the exchange rate of Morocco.</p> Ahmad Baijou Mohammed Kamal Zaraba Copyright (c) 2022 INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF ECONOMICS, BUSINESS AND HUMAN BEHAVIOUR 2022-04-08 2022-04-08 3 1 The Transformative Impact Of Digital Technology On Business Performance <p>Digital transformation is extremely dynamic and completely a timely approach that organizations offers to prioritize in its strategic design process which aligns business to the global digital trend.
