Export support programs

In an increasingly connected and globalized world, exporting is a key pillar of economic growth. With a view to consolidating Morocco's position as a key player on the world stage and promoting the expansion of companies on an international scale, the Ministry of Industry and Trade has set up two major initiatives: the "Go-To-Market" program and the Support program for First-Time Exporters « Primo-exportateurs ».

Through targeted financial support, prospecting assistance, and access to high-potential international markets, the Ministry creates opportunities for local businesses, encouraging export diversification and the country's economic growth.




The support program for first-time exporters consists of tailor-made support over a period of 2 years, through financial support from the State to companies and cooperatives under Moroccan law that have export potential and intend to become confirmed exporters.


Program Objectives

  • Increase the number of companies engaged in exporting and make them examples to be followed in the future by other non-exporting companies facing the same problems;
  • To enable beneficiary companies to base their presence in foreign markets on a solid foundation based on knowledge of the company's strengths and weaknesses and the particularities of the target markets;
  • Enable beneficiary companies to access certain means necessary for access to target markets;
  • Convert 100 casual and non-exporting enterprises into professional and regular exporting enterprises;
  • Increase the export turnover of exporting companies in a sporadic manner;
  • Encourage non-exporting companies to achieve a global export turnover.
