Morocco, EU to meet next month over trade pact   2013-03-15 08:14:33            

RABAT, March 14 (Xinhua) -- Morocco and the European Union (EU) will meet on April 22 in Rabat over a free trade agreement, Moroccan news agency reported late Thursday.

The two sides are expected to mull over trade facilitation, technical barriers to trade, sanitary and phytosanitary measures, protection of investments, public procurement and competition policy.

During his visit to Morocco earlier in March, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said the main objective of this agreement is to facilitate the gradual integration of the Moroccan economy into the internal market of the EU.

Trade between the EU and Morocco amounted to about 24 billion euros (about 31 billion U.S. dollars) in 2011.
