Morocco`s consequent economic and political stability has contributed over the past decade to sustained economic growth and a significant reduction in poverty. Although poverty trends are improving, regional inequalities are considerable, with access between cities and rural areas important for access to public services and economic opportunities, according to the MCC. The debate on the pros and cons of the pact was encapsulated during a Pathfinder Foundation public debate entitled "Separating the baby from bathing water: evaluation of the Millennium Challenge Corporation-Sri Lanka pact". The discussion took place on Friday, August 9 at BMICH. However, it is not confirmed whether Nepal, by the mere ratification of the MCC, would be part of the American military alliance and that it would oppose any third country. The pros and cons of the GCC could have been discussed before the country accepted it. Most skepticism about the MCC seems more favourable to domestic consumption than to realism. Nepal must demonstrate its intelligence, talents and courage to judge whether the MCC is really in the interest of the nation or not. If there were any doubts about this, why did Nepal sign an agreement with the MCC? It was one of 16 countries selected in 2004 to apply for development assistance funds under the Millennium Challenge Account (MCA). Within ten days of the announcement of the selection of countries eligible for the exchange rate mechanism, five MCC delegations visited the 16 countries selected for consultations and found that ten of them met the criteria. However, Sri Lanka was not one of them, as it had scored fiscal policy points well below the fiscal policy median. "The compact is not just another contract; it is a contract with the U.S.
government, which is represented by the MCC and the Sri Lankan government by the Ministry of Finance and Media. The problem with a treaty is that it is governed at the international level and not on the national territory. It is clear that this document covers a range of laws, regulations and internal practices, but it will be subject to international law.
