Maritime transport is a key driver of international trade. It carries more than three quarters of the goods transported worldwide, excluding intra-EU trade, and provides more than a third of trade between Member States of the European Union.

Obligatory passage of almost all external trade, the maritime sector ensures the delivery of more than 95% of goods traded between Morocco and the rest of the world.

Thus, it plays a leading role in the economic development policy of Morocco and its trade.
In a free trade environment, it has become a matter vital in view of its impact on strengthening the international competitiveness of Moroccan industry.
