Tunisia: prices increase again in July

Tunisia’s consumer price index increased again in July 2015, according to the latest figures from National Institute of Statistics (INS).

The price index went up 0.3% between June and July of the current year.

According to the INS, this increase was due to a 1.2% rise in clothing prices and 1.2% growth in shoes on the occasion of the Eid El-Fitr.

The Tunisian Ministry of Trade has managed to control food prices with decreases of 3.1% for egg prices, 0.6% for poultry, 0.5% for fruits, 0.4% for vegetables and even 0.1% for beef.

For the rest, these are small increases, but which accumulation resulted in the small increase in price index, despite the drop in inflation. The latter stood at 4.2% against 5.7% a month earlier.
