Moroccan farmer unions want vegetable exports to be reinstated

Agriculture unions have called on the Moroccan government to find a way to supply the local market while allowing farmers to export their vegetables. The call comes in the wake of the government’s ban on vegetable exports to West Africa and Europe to keep the national market well-supplied and bring down food prices.

Spokespersons from the country’s major agriculture and export confederations, COMADER and FIFEL, raised their concerns during a meeting with the Head of Government, Aziz Akhannounch, on Friday and called on the government to work towards finding a solution to reinstate vegetable exports while lowering prices.
