About Morocco

Morocco is one of America's oldest friends in the Middle East and North Africa and is recognized today as a major non-NATO ally. Since 1957, the U.S. Government and the Government of Morocco have worked together to make real and substantial improvements in the lives of Moroccan citizens.

In the wake of the 2011 Arab Spring, Morocco continues to make positive strides in pursuit of political and economic reforms and remains a strong U.S. ally. Despite continued political tensions focused on corruption and political marginalization, the Government of Morocco remains committed to the implementation of its new constitution and the realization of ambitious plans for job creation, improved educational opportunities, and social inclusivity.

For over 50 years, the United States and the Government of Morocco have worked together to make substantial improvements in the lives of Moroccan citizens. However, Morocco still faces many complex challenges, including an under-employed workforce, a general lack of trust between civil society and government, and an overall literacy rate of only 55 percent.  Following the recent political transitions that swept the region, the Moroccan government has been responsive to its citizens growing calls for greater economic inclusion and better political participation. The United States seeks to help the Government of Morocco achieve its stated reform goals and respond to the needs of its citizens.
