Morocco and the European Union (EU) have agreed to postpone the fifth round of negotiations for a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement (DCFTA) to a date that will be fixed later.
According to a joint statement issued by Morocco and the EU and cited by the Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Trade, the two parties have postponed this fifth round to allow Morocco to carry out additional studies of sectors covered by the DCFTA.
Nonetheless and according to the same statement, different contacts between the two parties will carry on in order to ensure the continuity of the negotiation process.
Four rounds of negotiations have already taken place since March and both parties report negotiations to be on the right track. Their common objective is to conclude a DCFTA as soon as possible with the agreement taking into considerations their mutual interests and priorities.
