    An example of a parallel example would be using Dubai's desalination plans (which I learned for unit 4) briefly in a water conflicts question. That kind of thing

    Morocco has vowed itself to become one of the most important countries in the tourism business. It all started with Vision 2010, and now it gets to another level by announcing vision 2020, the main aspects of an ambitious goal for this Arab country.
    In a meeting organised in Marrakech, Morocco revealed the main lines of an ambitious programme called Vision 2020.
    The goal for Morocco is to attain 18 million tourists by 2020. 17 000 beds will be created each year, and more investments will be done in the promotion of the country’s image and resources by doubling the budget of the ONMT (Office national marocain du tourisme).
    The focus will be on the traditional markets of Morocco’s tourism; France Germany ,Belgium, but also on new markets such as Russia and China.
    Cultural tourism will be encouraged by the promotion of more than 1400 sites all over Morocco.
    The importance of seaside resorts will continue as the Azur programme will be achieved. Morocco is expecting the seaside tourism to count for 42% and the cultural tourism for 39% of tourists. Moreover, a high commission charged of tourism will be created and an investments fund will be used to boost the sector. This new vision 2020 is set to complete the vision 2010 that had aimed for 10 million tourists.

    also, Ghana (export commodities rather than processed goods),
    shrimp farming in indonesia compared with mauritania's reliance on fishing
    solar potential compare with china
    reliance on tourism industry - thailand tsunami
    uganda - debt relief - military power

    As a last minute note, the grade boundaries for Jan 2011 were quite low;
    73.3% for an A using raw-to-UMS conversion - good news!
