Preparation session, in-country briefing and follow-up assistance after the trip will support your efforts to gain new customers.


Why Egypt?

Egypt is the top export market in Africa for US goods. With a population of over 103 Million and a GDP of $402.8 Billion, there are many opportunities here for US products and services. The US and Egypt Bilateral Investment Treaty has been in effect for over 40 years, which helps resolve trade disputes between the two nations if they arise.

There are opportunities for US exporters in the following sectors: information, communications and technology, infrastructure, medical equipment, renewable energy, safety and security, water and environment, education, and training.



Why Morocco?

Morocco is the leading country in Africa for pharmaceutical manufacturing. If you are a bioscience company and have products that can be used in this industry, Morocco could be a great opportunity for you.

Morocco is a favorable place for US businesses to sell products and services. According to the International Trade Administration, US exports were over $ 2.8 billion in 2021 (up by 55% from 2020). The US-Morocco Free Trade Agreement eliminates tariffs on 95% of consumer and industrial goods. Intellectual property, trademarks, and patents are protected under this free trade agreement, lowering the risk of entry.

Leading opportunity sectors include energy, infrastructure, aerospace, healthcare, safety and security, telecommunications, education, and training.
