Tunisia: textile and clothing exports up 25% in Q1 2018 (Feriani)

In a statement given to AfricanManager Tuesday, May 8, 2018, on the sidelines of the workshop on youth integration and employability in the textile and clothing sector, Minister of Industry and Small and Medium Enterprises Slim Feriani said the textile and clothing sector plays a very important role in achieving economic and social equilibrium, improving the trade balance, developing the investment climate and exports and creating jobs.

He added that “we have a whole program with Switzerland whose objective is to strengthen the sector and encourage young people to enter the textile market, which remains a key vector in job creation.

I would like to note that this sector is no longer in crisis; we have recorded a remarkable recovery and very positive export indices with the realization of an estimated growth of 25% during the first quarter of the current year,” he pointed out.
