Exports have continued to grow in the first quarter of 2019, reaching 75.1% in relation to imports, i.e. their best level since 2011.
This result reduces the pressure on foreign exchange reserves and stabilizes the value of the dinar.
This result is due to growth in exports of phosphates (75.8%), textile products (16.2%) and mechanical and electrical products (18.4%).
The improvement of tourism revenues by 35.1% also contributed to this result.
On the other hand, imports of vehicles remain at 0.3%; those of ready-to-wear remain at 10.1%.
