Minselkhoz To Focus On Increasing Imports Of Agricultual Products From Morocco Featured

18 March 2016

According to Russia's Ministry of Agriculture, as of March 6, 2016 (from January 1 to March 6), the volume of imported agricultural products from Morocco to Russia increased by 43.9% to US $126.6 million. Of this amount, tomatoes grew by nearly three times as much to 44 thousand tonnes, while the supply volume of other vegetables grew by nearly twice as much - up to about 2 thousand tonnes.

"Supplies of citrus fruits grew by 28% to 67 thousand tonnes, frozen fish - by 44% to 2 thousand tonnes," according to journalists quoting the press secretary of the Russian Minister of Agriculture Alexander Tkachev. According to the minister, Morocco is a strategic partner for Russia for orange, mandarin and tomato supplies. Therefore, Russia by the request and preparedness of Morocco could increase its fruit exports.

"We are for (increasing export) - the quality (of product) is much better, especially when we do not grow it in our country," Tkachev said. "Moroccan producers have always dominated in our market."

During earlier negotiations between the King of Morocco Mohammed VI and Putin, the Russian president commented that he was his surprised that Moroccan fruit exports to Russia had decreased despite restrictions against agricultural products from the European Union.
