Since 1985, Morocco's government has reformed the country's agriculture especially with respect to domestic agricultural markets. Drawing on available sources and our experience, we argue three related points. First, the impacts of reforms undertaken have, by and large, been positive. This reflects much more the dismal state of agricultural policy in 1985 rather than a positive rating of the reform process or the current policy environment. Second, further reforms, especially with respect to trade policy, are desirable. Third, future reforms involve important policy tradeoffs, especially with respect to price stability for strategic agricultural commodities (bread wheat, sugar and oilseeds).
