On August 7, 2018, US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and US Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue announced that the government of Morocco has agreed to allow commercial imports of US poultry meat and products into Morocco for the first time.

Morocco had prohibited imports of US poultry. Officials from the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative and the US Department of Agriculture worked with the Moroccan government to provide assurances on the safety of US poultry. More details on requirements for exporting to Morocco are available from the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service Export Library.
