From what I can tell, U.S./Morocco relations are currently very good. An Arabic nation in Northern Africa, Morocco has become allied with the United States post 9/11 in the global war on terror. Morocco shared valuable information with the United States about al Qaeda after 9/11 and in May 2003 when terrorists bombed Casablanca, the U.S. offered military help and intelligence information to Morocco. Currently, the U.S. maintains positive political and diplomatic relations with Morocco. The U.S. is helping Morocco with its commerce, economy, military and security. In 2004, a free trade agreement called the U.S.-Morocco Free Trade Agreement was signed. This agreement provides that 95 percent of the two-way trade between the U.S. and the Royal Kingdom of Morocco will be without tariffs. The U.S. sells a great deal of grain and meat to Morocco and Morocco is providing opportunities for U.S. banks, insurance and technology companies to do business in Morocco.
