    In 2004, Morocco was one of the first Mediterranean countries that signed a free trade agreement with the United States. This agreement has the ambition to be global, including every sector where trade liberalization could lead to trade expansion. For Morocco this is a major shift – a qualitative one – which has considerable implications internally (on the domestic market) and externally. In particular, the Moroccan strategic relationship with the European Union, its main trading partner, will certainly be affected. Paradoxically, the multiplication of free trade agreements reduces its leeway and makes the country much more dependent on external food supplies. On the other hand, Moroccan agriculture seems less prepared than ever to the opening up of the economy.
