King Mohammed VI is to be the biggest benefactor of EU trade agreement
Morocco is one of the three largest agricultural countries in North Africa. Right now, they have trade agreements with the EU and if they were to go through with the proposal and ease restrictions, Morocco's exports would increase and help their economy. The European Parliament and Morocco have recently come to the agreement that allows EU countries to fish in Moroccan waters if they make an annual payment to Rabat. If EU eases restrictions 55% of their imports will come from Morocco, this agreement would help Morocco's economy tremendously. This will make more Moroccans to be employed and the increase in exports will bring more money into their economy.
