La Spezia And Casablanca Port Seek Cooperation

La Spezia and Casablanca port seek cooperation

La Spezia, Italy (PortSEurope) November 27, 2020 – The port authority of La Spezia has held talks with Morocco’s Casablanca with a view to increasing mutual trade. Any new agreements will be in line with the Innovation Program of state-owned Agence Nationale des Ports (ANP) and the European FENIX program. The initial aim goal of the program is to improve and simplify import and export
procedures between the ports of Morocco and the ports of the European Union by ensuring electronic exchanges between customs, control authorities and other interested bodies. State-owned Agence Nationale des Ports (ANP), the regulatory body of the Moroccan port system, wants to adopt international standards through the Moroccan Single Window to simplify the procedures of foreign trade (Portnet). “The first phase of the pilot project on fast and safe international trade navigation has started in recent days,” a joint statement said, adding that this initial stage concerns the exchange of logical data between port operators in Italy and Morocco. The second phase covers the exchange of documents related to customs control of goods coming from La Spezia. Data from Trading Economics reported that Moroccan exports to Italy amounted to $1.37 billion in 2019. The period of January-August this year marked remarkable trade cooperation between the two countries, placing Italy fifth among the North African country’s trading partners.
