US Embassy Rabat Morocco

U.S. Embassy Rabat, Morocco

Morocco was one of the first countries to recognize the newly independent United States, opening its ports to American ships by decree of Sultan Mohammed III in 1777. Morocco formally recognized the United States by signing a treaty of peace and friendship in 1786, a document that remains the longest unbroken relationship in U.S. history. Full diplomatic relations began in 1905. Morocco entered into the status of a French protectorate from 1912 to 1956, and normal diplomatic relations resumed after U.S. recognition of Moroccan independence in 1956. The two countries have a long history of working together bilaterally and regionally.

U.S. assistance to Morocco enhances the Government of Morocco’s (GOM) capacity to promote security and prevent acts of terrorism while addressing core drivers of instability, such as political and social marginalization. U.S. education and economic growth assistance aim to improve productivity and access to economic opportunity. Our support has a positive impact beyond Morocco’s borders in both the Middle East and Africa, bolstering Morocco’s emergence as a major partner for regional stabilization efforts.

Morocco seeks to establish itself as a hub for shipping, logistics, finance, assembly, and sales. More than 150 U.S. companies operate in Morocco, particularly in the renewable energy, infrastructure, aviation, and environmental technology sectors.

Today the U.S. embassy is in Rabat. There is also a U.S. Consulate in Casablanca.
