Sixth economic power in Africa, Morocco is also at the forefront with regard to the production and export of agricultural products. Agriculture in Morocco is the leading contributor (around 14%) to GDP ahead of tourism and industry.
The implementation of the 2008 - 2020 Morocco Green Strategy was accompanied by a considerable public investment, reflecting a major effort made by the country to make the agricultural sector a priority for socio-economic development.
The fruit and vegetable sector covers an area of nearly 1,300,000 ha, including approximately 1,000,000 ha of fruit plantations and 300,000 ha of vegetables. Average global production is around 9 million tons, including nearly 3 million tons of fruit and more than 6 million tons of vegetables. See more here. Morocco annual fruit exports amount to: 3,552,000 T and those of vegetables to: 2,5134,000 T (2020).
