European Parliament's Committee on International Trade Adopts Morocco-EU Agriculture Agreement

The European Parliament's Committee on International Trade (INTA) adopted, on Monday evening, by an overwhelming majority, the agriculture agreement between Morocco and the European Union (EU).


This decisive vote in this Committee, which decides on substantive issues, is the final step at the level of the European Parliament's specialized committees before final adoption in plenary session, which is expected to take place next January.

According to European parliamentary sources in Strasbourg, this decisive vote, which reflects the position of the political groups represented in the European Parliament, takes place in the wake of recent positive developments witnessed by Morocco and the European Union to strengthen the legal certainty of their trade agreements and consolidate their strategic partnership in several areas.

The agreement adopted today by the INTA Committee with its implementing protocol aims to extend trade preferences to agricultural and fisheries products from the southern provinces of the Kingdom.
