A meeting for negotiation of a Free Trade Agreement between Morocco and the Mercosur was initiated yesterday on April 7 in Rabat.

The two day meeting will close today and was attended by representatives of both the Governments. Discussions will revolve around whether there would be a free trade or a fixed tariff preference.

The main objective is to familiarize both the regions about the existing conditions and norms and plan out the strategies for future.

While Morocco aims to sell textile products among others to Mercosur, Brazil in turn intends to export textile, machinery and equipments other related products.

In the first two months of this year, trade between Brazil and Morocco saw an unrestricted growth.

Brazilian exports to the Arab country rose from US $42 million in January and February of last year to $82.9 million in the same period this year. An average increase of 97.4 percent was registered.

On the other hand, Morocco exported $161.4 milion worth goods to Brazil against $26.7 million recorded in the same period of 2007. Products transacted mainly include phosphates and naphtha for petrochemical industry.
