Moroccan exports of textiles and leather have increased 3.8 per cent from 1999 to reach 28bn dirhams ($2.6bn) during 2000, according to figures released by the Moroccan Exchange Office. The Exchange Office claims that the increase was due to an 8.8 per cent increase in the export of hosiery during 2000. Exports of ready-to-wear garments remained around 16bn dirhams ($1.5bn)
