Morocco extends duty exemption on wheat imports

RABAT, Feb 24 (Reuters) - The Moroccan government extended the suspension of import duties on soft wheat until the end of April and on durum wheat until the end of May, a spokesman for the country’s customs authority said on Friday.

The decree was adopted at a government council meeting on Thursday.

“Under the government’s decree, we will continue to exempt soft wheat imports from custom duties until the end of April and on durm wheat imports until end-May to ensure adequate supplies for the domestic market,” the spokesperson told Reuters by telephone.
