Morocco calls on international firms to bid for new agriculture tender
Morocco's Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development has reopened a call for tenders for the co-funding, construction and management of irrigation infrastructure to protect the citrus-producing area of El Guerdane. The closing date is July 31, 2004.
This project will receive $71 million in public support from the Hassan II Economic and Social Development Fund. This call for tenders is part of Morocco's new hydro-agricultural development policy, and thus represents an opportunity for operators to break into that country's irrigation sector.
Agriculture plays a major role in the Moroccan economy accounting for up to 18 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP) and nearly 40 percent of employment. — (menareport.com)
