70 million euros (770 million dirhams) to finance the assistance program for the agricultural sectoral policy.

Morocco and the European Union signed, on Friday in Rabat, an agreement worth 70 million euros (770 million dirhams) to finance the assistance program for the agricultural sectoral policy.

This new program will support the implementation of the Moroccan Green Plan benefitting the rural zone, notably the solidarity-based agriculture sector which includes 800,000 farmers and covers 10% of the usable agricultural land.

The agreement was signed by Economy and Finance Minister Salaheddine Mezouar, Agriculture and Fisheries Minister Aziz Akhannouch and the head of the EU delegation in Rabat, Ambassador Eneko Landaburu.

The assistance program for the agricultural sectoral policy will span three years and target the eastern region as well as the regions of Draa, Boulemane and Tafilalet.

It is aimed at gradually upgrading the industries of red meat, date palms, olives and other local products mainly truffles.

This will help ramp up production, improve farmers’ income, create job opportunities and promote the quality of processed products.
