This positioning was further consolidated through the various free trade agreements including:  

  • The free trade agreement with the European Union with the objective of integrating the European Trading Zone (ETZ).
  • The free trade agreement with the United States
  • The quadra agreement signed with Egypt, Jordan and Tunisia, within the framework of the Arab Free Trade Area
  • The free trade agreements with Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, …
