After its performance in the first half of 2019, the tourism sector in Tunisia is in a new dynamic of growth.
According to the Tunisian Central Bank (BCT), tourism receipts rose 2% on September 10, or 4 billion dinars (DT), previously against 4, 09 billion at that date.
Revenues, she says, have increased in absolute value by 1, 3 billion and +46, 3% in relative value, compared to the same period last year.
The context remains favorable to Tunisian tourism, which continues to enjoy good prospects.
These performances are due to the increase in the number of tourists but also the depreciation of the local currency against foreign currencies (dollars and euros).
It should be noted that during the first 6 months of the year, the number of tourists reached 3,774,000 non-resident visitors, an increase of 16.7% over the same period of 2018.
In this dynamic, the Ministry of Tourism expects more than 9 million foreign tourists by the end of 2019, against 8.3 million in 2018.
