ABSTRACT
The U.S. and Morocco have reached agreement on a comprehensive and groundbreaking Free Trade Agreement designed to strip away barriers and facilitate trade and investment between both countries. American workers, consumers, investors and farmers will enjoy preferential access to Morocco's $11 billion import market, tying at crossroads of Africa, Europe and Middle East. The agreement between the U.S. and Morocco is an integral part of U.S. President George W. Bush's strategy to create a Middle East Free Trade Area by 2013. The United States currently has free trade agreements with Israel and Jordan, and has launched negotiations with Bahrain early in 2004.
