The Maghreb countries feared that former eastern-bloc nations, with their better qualified yet still cheap workers and relatively well-developed infrastructure, would attract aid money and investment at the expense of North Africa. On the other hand, the East European countries also represent vast new potential markets for North African products, products that can compete – at least in some sectors. For example, it was the unreliability of East European gas supplies that in part led Western Europe, and especially Italy, to greatly expand gas imports from Algeria.
However, although financial flows increased over the period, the composition of the aid had begun to swing sharply away from grants in favor of loans, and overall levels of support still fell far short of needs. The aid had also been criticized for often being delivered via European businesses and consultancies and thus not encouraging capacity building in the Maghreb. The system of financial protocols ended with the Barcelona Declaration and the signing of comprehensive association agreements, and was replaced by the first MEDA program (1995–99).

The overall economic fragmentation of the region, which is principally a function of the insufficient export complementarity of the Maghreb economies (especially in agriculture) and of trade barriers, has been reinforced by political disputes and by a tendency to be in competition for the same European markets (Khader 1992: 55, 64–70; Oualalou 1996: 90, 122–23; Ben El Hassan Alaoui 1994: 91–97).
