Japan is looking to Morocco to help ensure its food security

Japanese deputy agriculture minister Takebe Arata told the media during his visit to Rabat that his country is seeking larger imports of fertilizers and phosphates from Morocco as well as citrus products, as Japan is looking to Morocco to help ensure its food security in a global context marked by a surge in prices of soil nutrients on the back of the supply disruption created by the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

“Morocco is a global phosphates power, and that is the reason why my country is interested in importing a considerable quantity of fertilizers,” he said following talks with the Moroccan agriculture minister in Rabat. He said Japan intends to import Moroccan phosphates to feed soil in the next autumn season.

Agricultural trade between Morocco and Japan stands at 200 million dirhams annually, showing a surplus in Morocco’s favor, with exports at 180 million dirhams made up mainly of coriander, frozen strawberries, and algae.
