NORFOLK, Va., April 21 (UPI) -- The Virginia Port Authority has signed an agreement with Moroccan authorities to increase ocean shipping between Norfolk and Tangier.

Trade between Virginia and Morocco reached $193 million in 2007, the report said.

The agreement was signed by the Tangier Mediterranean Special Agency, the report said.
