U.S. chamber cites benefits of U.S.-Morocco free trade agreement
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce praised the Bush administration for its conclusion of a free trade agreement with Morocco.
The U.S.-Morocco free trade agreement allow American shippers more access to the North African country’s $11 billion import market, the chamber said.
Benefits from the free-trade agreement include across-the-board tariff reductions, improved access to Morocco’s services and telecommunications markets, and enhanced investor protections.
The chamber said it’s “optimistic” that there will be bipartisan support on Capitol Hill for approval of the free trade agreement.
