Tourism receipts passed the 2,700 million dinars, increasing by 377 MD compared to last year, the Ministry of Tourism and Handicrafts Tuesday said in a video posted on its Facebook page.
The number of tourists boasted a record figure of 7,051,813 in 2017, i.e. a 23.2% rise in comparison with 2016.
This is the result of the number of European and Maghreb tourists growing 20% and 31%, respectively.
The UK, the Netherlands, Poland and Belgium lifted their advisory against travel to Tunisia in the aftermath of June 2015 terrorist attack in Sousse.
A number of airlines and tour operators, including Brussels Airlines, Thomas Cook, Air Malta and TUI Fly, relaunched Tunisia holidays.
The ministry also reminded that a Tunisia-EU open skies preliminary agreement was inked last December 11.
