RABAT, September 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Moroccan exporters intend to increase supplies of fruits and vegetables to Russia as Moscow has banned agricultural imports from the US and EU countries in a tit-for-tat move against Western sanctions, Moroccan business daily L'Economiste reported on Tuesday.
Moroccan exporters hope for a major breakthrough at the Russia market, L'Economiste said.
According to the newspaper, Russia, where Moroccan tangerines have been traditionally popular, accounted for just 4% of Morocco's agricultural exports in 2008 and 12% in 2013. The figure could reach 15% by the end of 2014, the daily said.
Russia banned agricultural imports from the United States, European Union, Canada, Norway and Australia in retaliation to economic sanctions imposed on Russia over the situation in Ukraine.
