In spite of the difficult world economic climate, negotiations between the EU and Morocco over co-operation are steadily making progress.
Moroccan and European officials on Friday (April 11th) wrapped up five days of talks in Brussels regarding the proposed Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement (DCFTA).
Since the last round of talks in Morocco earlier this year, the two parties have been in permanent contact to move negotiations forward.
“Today’s DCFTA represents a new generation of agreements that the EU and Morocco hope to integrate into their economic relations, followed by new business opportunities, which will be seized upon to boost trade,” EU-Moroccan relations specialist Mouhieddine Rochdi told Magharebia.
A stronger political and security partnership between Morocco and the EU is of fundamental importance, he said.
