Tunisia: tourism revenues down 7% from 2015 and 36% from 2014

Tunisia’s tourism earnings reached 2 billion dinars during the first ten months of 2016, which corresponds to a decrease of -7.1% compared with the same period of 2015 and a fall of -36.2% compared to 2014, despite the increase in arrivals and overnight stays.

According to the statistical data published by the Ministry of Tourism, the number of arrivals at the Tunisian borders amounted to 4,810,760, at the end of October 2016, as against 4,653,127 tourists in October 2015 (up 3.4 %) and 6,341,554 in 2015 (down 24.1%).

The number of overnight stays totaled 16,422,968 overnight stays, up 10% from the first 10 months of 2015 and falling by 38.8% compared to 2014.

The tourism sector will be restructured through the implementation of a coherent strategy, including vocational training, quality control and diversification of the tourism product, according to the Ministry.
