Tunisia: tourism revenues climb up 38% to over 5 billion dinars until November 20

Tourism revenues exceeded 5 billion dinars, up 38.3%, by November 20, 2019, compared to last year, according to statistics published by the Ministry of Tourism on Wednesday.

In foreign currencies, the revenue growth is estimated at 29.6% in Euros and 22.3% in Dollars.

The department pointed out that 8.3 million tourists had visited Tunisia until November 20, up 14% compared to last year.

Hence, the target of attracting 9 million tourists in 2019 is now easy to achieve.

Just over half of the arrivals are North Africans (4.1 million tourists) with a rise of 16.4% compared to November 2018, while Europeans represent about a third (2.6 million visitors) up 16.2%.

The number of overnight stays recorded during this period reached 27.8 million, up 11.8% compared to the same period in 2018.
