The article reports that King Mohammed VI of Morocco held talks with Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika at an Arab summit in the Algerian capital Algiers in March. At the same summit, Spanish PM Jos� Rodriguez Zapatero signalled his government's willingness to facilitate a resolution to the 30-year-long conflict between Morocco and Western Saharan separatist group the Polisario Front. Pressure for exchange rate liberalisation is expected to build this year, as the dirham begins to appreciate against the euro, with a negative impact on the competitiveness of Moroccan exports.
