Morocco is the United States’ oldest friend in the Middle East and North Africa. This bond, dating back over 200 years, is forged on a solid foundation of shared values in security, freedom, and prosperity. Located in an unstable and volatile region, Morocco continues to set itself apart with its stability and steadily growing economy.
Since 1957, the United States and Morocco have been working together to improve the lives of Moroccan citizens. Both the Government of Morocco and its citizens show a clear commitment to addressing Morocco’s development challenges by implementing progressive reforms to increase social and economic opportunity. USAID partners with the Government of Morocco, civil society organizations, and the private sector to design programs that support the country’s ambitious development goals. USAID’s programs focus on enhancing participatory local governance, expanding business and livelihood opportunities, improving community resilience, and increasing educational attainment.
