  • Morocco already developed a comprehensive National Agricultural Investment Plan name "Plan Maroc Vert" that was not developed within the CAADP Framework. Therefore, there is a need to review and align the "Plan Maroc Vert" to deliver on the Malabo Declaration Commitments.
  • The country should allocate more public investments in agriculture and address the strategic areas of investments that would increase the agricultural GDP to at least 6%.
  • Although Morocco recorded a good performance on trade facilitation, more effort is needed to increase the value of intra-African trade for agricultural commodities and services.
