(Ecofin Agency) - Tunisia’s fruit exports increased by 51% in value to TND42.4 million ($16.2 million) between January 2 and July 3, the Ministry of Agriculture, Water Resources and Fisheries revealed.

This increase in revenue was driven by higher export volume which reached 13,990 tons over the period reviewed, 19.2% more than the previous marketing year.

Apricot was the most sold fruit with shipments amounting to 4,990 tons for TND15.92 million. Main revenue-generating destinations include Libya (TND11.5 million) and Italy (TND4.65 million).

Let’s note that apricot is mainly cultivated in central Tunisia, in Kairouan and Kasserine regions.
