MOROCCO AND THE E.U.
Morocco has close and privilege relations with the European Union. It is part of the EuroMed Partnership (1), the southern branch of European Neighborhood Policy (2).
As member of the ENP/EMP cooperates with E.U. in a wide range of sectors and activities which are financed by the European Neighborhood Instrument. The cooperation between E.U. and the Kingdom of Morocco began back in 1976 with a co-operation agreement , which was replaced by the EU-Morocco Association Agreement signed in Brussels, on 26 February 1996 and entered into force on 1 March, 2000 (3).
The framework of those privilege relations and cooperation are described in details in the E.U. – Morocco Action Plan signed in Brussels between the parts on 9 December 2013 (4) and the Single Support Framework (SSF) 2014 – 2017(5).
The Kingdom of Morocco, as it is officially named, lies in the Northwest edge of Africa, being one of the Maghreb countries. It covers an area of 446,550 km2. The population according to the 2014 census is 33,850,000.
Morocco is a member of the U.N.O. but also participates in other regional and political organizations too, such as the Arab League, the OIC (Organization for the Islamic Cooperation) and the UMA (Arab Maghreb Union), to name some main ones.
Morocco’s economy is considered a relatively liberal one, governed by the law of supply and demand. Since 1993, the country has followed a policy of privatization of certain economic sectors which used to be in the hands of the government. Morocco has become a major player in the African economic affairs, and is the 5th African economy by GDP (PPP). Morocco was ranked the 1st African country by the Economist Intelligence Unit’quality-of-life index, ahead of South Africa. However, Morocco has since then slipped into fourth place behind Egypt, but ahead of Angola (6).
For additional information regarding the Moroccan economy, please check the IMF survey titled Moroccan Economy on the Right Track (7) and The World Bank Morocco Overview, dated 30 September 2015 (8).
In 2011, the Moroccan government introduced a series of reforms to improve the overall competitiveness of its economy and to encourage foreign entities to continue to invest in Morocco. The increased competitiveness will underpin Morocco’s continuing economic growth and contribute to furthering Moroccan infrastructure development. In 2014, Morocco was the third-largest recipient of foreign investment in Africa, and the country is expected to remain attracting infrastructure investment because of its economic progress.
Fast forward to 2015, the Moroccan government introduced a new public private partnership (PPP) law to take further steps to help organizations to invest in Morocco and facilitate the development of infrastructure projects. This new law is facilitating continued Moroccan infrastructure building, particularly in the energy and transportation sectors. It is also encouraging PPP funding arrangements in the new areas of health and education, along with ongoing infrastructure development in areas such as highways, airport and port extensions and railways.
