Hague stressed the importance of implementing the European Neighborhood Policy in order to enhance access of North African agricultural products to European markets.

During this tour, Hague discussed issues relating to political reform, and reiterated the determination of the United Kingdom to support development projects in these countries through the Arab Partnership Initiative, which was launched earlier this year by the British Government.
