This report presents the macro-effects of further trade integration between the European Union and respectively Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia in the horizon 2020. It put together three case studies which adopt a similar methodology based on both Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) model and Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) analyses. Overall, the simulation results show that trade liberalisation leads to a general gain for the countries under review, with the effect being more pronounced when combining tariff elimination with non-tariff barrier reduction.
