The National Ports Agency (ANP) announced that container traffic recorded 1.3 million 20-foot equivalent unit (TEU) containers. The number represents an increase of 2.5% compared to 2018.

The ANP issued a press release to summarize a discussion held last week about the progress of the agency’s projects.

During the meeting, Amara emphasized the “highly beneficial anticipative management” of the COVID-19 crisis.

The official shared gratitude for all of the employees at ANP for their work during confinement, “which made it possible to keep ports operational to ensure the supply of the country and maintain the crucial import for the economy.”

Morocco has been under lockdown since March 20, but the government has repeatedly vowed it will continue to ensure the sufficient provision of all food supplies across the country amid the COVID-19 crisis.

ANP General Director Nadia Laraki announced that the agency invested MAD 962 million ($100.5 million) in infrastructure development during 2019.

The budget covered several projects including a multipurpose terminal at the port of Agadir, among other infrastructure developments.

Laraki said ANP’s turnover increased by 4.1% to reach MAD 1.85 billion ($193 million) in 2019. The self-financing capacity reached MAD 477 million ($50 million). The added value reached MAD 1.17 billion ($122.3 million).

Despite COVID-19 crisis, Tangier Med Port Director Kamal Lakhmas said import and export activities in the Med and Mohammedia ports continue to be healthy.

On March 25, ANP reassured citizens that the pandemic was not affecting the supply of essential goods.

The government reassured that cereals, sugar, livestock feed, and oil, among other basic necessities, continue to arrive in Moroccan ports in regular quantities, if not in excess, to cover Morocco’s domestic demand.
