Conclusion

Among African countries, Morocco was the 4th largest importer of agri-food and seafood products from the world in 2018 (after Egypt, Algeria and South Africa). Canada ranked as its 7th largest supplier in 2018. Morocco's imports from Canada have increased since 2014. They represented 6.1% of Morocco's total agri-food and seafood imports from the world in 2018. Canada's exports to Morocco are relatively large. Compared to other suppliers, Canada saw a stable increase in three of the top ten commodities from 2014 to 2018. These commodities were cereals, fish and crustaceans, and vegetables.
