Morocco's Agricultural Profile. Imports vs Exports
The data also shows a major deficiency in wheat production, capacity should be ramped up in the years ahead so as to become self sufficient in that important foodstuff. Relying over and over again on U.S imports, even at preferential rates, is detrimental to our food security for the future. A decennial plan to reach self sufficiency is wheat is totally workable, it makes no sense to pay in hard currency what we can grow at home.
Also, you can tell by our exports that our agriculture is completely geared up towards exports to the European market. That reliance will also have to be cut down and we need to start looking at what our neighboring countries, Algeria, Mauritania, Tunisia, Libya and Egypt import and consume locally, as a way to strengthen the complementary and integration of the Union of the Arab Maghreb' economies.
