The Moroccan government decided to impose more restrictions on Turkish products for a period of 5 years so that customs duties on textiles bearing Turkish seals increased by 90%.


The Moroccan authorities warned against closing the Turkish stores if those decisions were not adhered to.

On the other hand, sources with knowledge in Morocco said the government took those decisions against the products manufactured in Turkey to encourage the national industry.

Rabat’s decision comes at a time when Ankara is suffering from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s decision to ban the import of goods and products coming from Anatolia in Turkey, a decision supported by a number of major popular campaigns to boycott products made in Turkey, according to the online Saudi newspaper Sabq.

According to the Turkish “Ahwal” website, the decision of the Moroccan authorities dealt with raising the prices of customs duties on all products made in Turkey and said that textile products are the most prominent Turkish products facing new restrictions in Morocco.


Morocco aims to cover the $1.2 billion deficit resulting from trade. According to Moroccan media reports last week, where a decision was adopted to impose taxes on many products, on top of which are textiles, clothes, leather, cars, metals, wood, and electricity.

Annually, Turkey’s textile sector caused 44 thousand people in Morocco to lose their jobs in 2017 Rabat encourages its citizens to buy local products to support the national industry.

The Moroccan Ministry of Trade also stipulated that the Turkish “BIM” chain of stores spread in Morocco, which depends on the sale of Turkey’s products there, that half of the supply in all stores, affiliated to that chain, to be of Moroccan production, and warned that in the event of non-compliance, the 500 stores owned by it will be closed.

I thought the Maghreb countries were close allies of Turkey. Atleast Algeria and Tunisia were.

It is called dumping china style. Morocco is right to protect their traditional textiles industries.

Friendships do not mean you destroy the other's industries.

Currect but is there something like that on other countries in Morocco?
And also it's not just about textiles

Never saw Turkish products in Morocco only Chinese ones. Doubt it will affect the Turks.

Am sure they will buy it from their new chum Israel instead. Firstly they will buy the Palestinian land from Israel, then grow cotton and set up factory with their money and call it Moroccan cotton and then US will give subsidy to Israel too. What a crap Arab countries are going through just no end to it.

Turkish exporters are struggling with shrinking markets as Morocco appears to have joined the countries that are effectively boycotting all products made in Turkey. Sources from the Moroccan Ministry of Trade indicate that measures have been put in place to prevent unfair competition from Turkish textile producers who are dominating the local market.

After hiking taxes on imported Turkish goods by 90 percent, Morocco appears to be joining Saudi Arabia and the UAE in a de-facto boycott of products made in Turkey amid rising regional tensions.

Turkish exporters have had difficulties in the Saudi Arabian and Emirati markets as those countries have maintained an unofficial policy of not importing Turkish goods for more than a year.

Those difficulties have spread to North Africa, which normally present substantial markets to Turkish exporters. In 2019, Algeria imported $1.86 billion in Turkish goods while Morocco hauled in $2.24 billion, according to figures from the Turkish Exporters’ Assembly (TİM).

In recent weeks, however, Turkey has had trouble in North African countries, and Morocco in particular, following exorbitant tax hikes, Reuters reported.

The Moroccan tax increase is reportedly slated to be in place for the next five years. Sources from the Moroccan Ministry of Trade indicate that measures have been put in place to prevent unfair competition from Turkish textile producers who are dominating the local market.

“There has always been a tough situation with Morocco. It imposes high tariffs, especially at customs duties checkpoints, in order to support more domestic production. But the fact that Morocco is now included in the equation with Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Egypt has made its attitude towards us a little more difficult, it has become tougher than before,” said Giyasettin Eyüpkoca, president of the Laleli Industrialists and Businessman’s Association (LASİAD)

You don't have any other way to begin with.. in other words, you don't have any option, if you try to liberate your kind you will meet the same fate as Mohammed Morsi and thousands other.

As for democratic heaven, well we maybe not, but we are striving for it atleast in our countries.
