Tunisia’s early fruit exports reached 28,364 tons in the 2015 season worth 50.361 million dinars against 45,390 tons in the previous season.
According to statistics released by the Inter-professional Fruit Grouping (GIFruits), this has caused a 38% drop in terms of quantity and 32% in value.
This decrease is due to the decline in quantities exported to the Libyan and Algerian markets. Indeed, the amounts of early fruit exported to the Libyan market fell by 44% to 17,232 tons from 30,829 tons in the 2014 season.
This is the same conclusion for the Algerian market which has dropped by 44% and that, due to several problems faced, including complicated administrative procedures.
