US Consultations on Improving the Business Environment in Morocco

April 25, 2016 - April 29, 2016

CLDP and the World Bank co-sponsored US Consultations for Improving the Business Environment in Morocco from April 25-29, 2016. The program was designed in coordination with the Moroccan National Committee for the Business Environment (CNEA), whose 12 delegates attended the program, and it aimed to strengthen the CNEA’s capacity to implement commercial law reforms in Morocco. The consultations covered topics such as contract enforcement, arbitration, insolvency, government performance evaluation, and economic indicators. They featured meetings with the Federal Judicial Center, Office of Management and Budget, the Small Business Administration, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Maryland, several departments of the World Bank, a think tank, and a law firm. This U.S. visit is part of CLDP’s multi-year cooperation with the CNEA in an effort to improve the business environment in Morocco for increased investment and economic growth.

Upcoming Programs

CLDP in collaboration with the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine and the Ministry of Agriculture, supported the travel of the Government of Ukraine (GOU) delegation to the GPA Committee Meeting on October 16-20, 2017, at WTO Secretariat, Geneva. The GOU delegation consisted of two Ministry of Economic Development and Trade officials. They attended the GPA Committee meeting and participated in bilateral negotiations with the U.S. and other delegations.

The GOU participation in the GPA Committee Meeting will ensure Ukraine has a more active role on issues critical to Ukraine’s trade sector; it effectively accomplishes the procedural requirements, carries out the negotiations, and provides answers to questions posed by GPA Committee members, including the United States.
