Tunisia fruit exports increased 35% to $58.61M in November

Tunisia’s fruit exports earnings stood at 58.615 million dinars ($23.4 million) in November 20, for the 2017 season. This is 35% more than the past season, the ministry of agriculture, water resources and fishery said in a statement quoted by TAP. 

The surge is mainly due to a greater exported volume (23,780 ton or +2.7%), mostly to new commercial outlets. 

Among these, at the top are Qatar and Kuwait, whose imports from Tunisia respectively rose by 1,094% and 118%. 

The usual markets also overall recorded the same trend, all but Libya. 

The world’s second largest fruit exporter, Russia, has seen the value and volume of its purchases rise by 140% and 171% respectively, while the United Arab Emirates recorded increases of 36% and 58% for these two figures. 

Tunisia’s exports included mainly citruses, dates, apricots and peaches.
