Eu Morocco Agreement

While the EFTA States have abolished their existing customs duties and quantitative restrictions on imports or exports from Morocco and measures having equivalent effect upon the entry into force of the Agreement, Morocco has been allowed to let them expire for a long transitional period, which has enabled it to adapt its economy to free trade conditions. This dismantling phase was completed on 1 December 2011. The first fisheries agreement between the EU and Morocco dates back to 1995. At the time, it was by far the most important fisheries agreement between the EU and a third country. However, the parties did not agree to extend the Protocol in 1999 and no agreement was reached before the entry into force of the current Fisheries Partnership Agreement in February 2007. .
