Moroccan imports of electro-technology reached 2.518 billion euros in 2009, with France, China, Spain, Germany and Italy being the main suppliers (ZVEI-the German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association).

According to Youssef Tagmouti, President of Fenelec, "elec expo and EneR Event enjoy the benefits of a Hosted Buyers Program, which Fenelec will realize in cooperation with CAFELEC-The African Electricity Confederation and Maroc Export, the governmental Moroccan Center for Export Promotion under the Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Trade. A budget covering the expenses for travel and accommodation has been allocated to invite more than a hundred senior buyers from Algeria, Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Gambia, Ivory Coast, Mali, Mauritania, Senegal and Togo.” Moroccan producers increased their exports of electro-technology worldwide to 1,470.2 billion Euros in 2009 (ZVEI-the German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association).

Germany is the Guest of Honor of elec expo in 2011. As one of Morocco’s most important trading partners, Germany’s presentation as Guest of Honor contributes to further develop this comfortable position According to ZVEI, German exports of electro-technology to Morocco have reached 222.2 million Euros in 2009.
