The Department of Agriculture reports that the government of Morocco has agreed to allow imports of U.S. beef and beef products under the terms of the U.S.-Morocco Free Trade Agreement. According to a USDA press release, initial estimates indicate that Morocco, which had previously prohibited imports of U.S. beef, would be an $80 million market for U.S. beef and beef products. USDA notes that in 2017 the U.S. was the world’s third-largest beef exporter, with global sales of beef and beef products valued at $7.3 billion.

U.S. and Moroccan officials have also discussed improvements to the administration of Morocco’s wheat tariff-rate quota and other agriculture and sanitary and phytosanitary issues and will continue this work through the FTA’s agriculture and SPS subcommittees.
