ABSTRACT
This article reports that countries of the Maghreb continue along the path of economic liberalisation and restructuring, partly to put their finances in order but also to enable them to make the most of a series of trade agreements with the European Union. Although some sectors are being opened up more rapidly than others, there is little doubt the governments of Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia see their economic futures closely tied to making the most of then geographical location on the edge of the world's largest single market. Growing residential and industrial demand for water is placing increased stresses upon the water sectors of Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria, while manufacturing enterprises that have been set up to supply European markets also require increased water supplies.
