Trade effects of the EU-Morocco Association Agreement

    Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

    Abstract

    This study investigates the effects of the 2012 amendment of the Protocol on EU imports of horticultural products from Morocco. Currently, Morocco’s exports of tomato, oranges and clementines outcompete EU’s main producers of these products in months during which Morocco’s supply is on the market. Expanded tariff free import quotas (TRQs) for tomatoes and clementines, and complete elimination of the TRQ for sweet oranges will not result in an immediate expansion of Morocco’s exports to the EU, but depend on Morocco’s ability to expand its production capacity for these products. Next to institutional reform, infrastructural investments and extension, improving water productivity is key in this respect.
