    Tunisia’s international tourist receipts reached 3.16 billion dinars in August 10, 2019, against 2.2 billion at the same date last year, posting an increase of 971 million dinars (+ 44%) , according to data from the Central Bank of Tunisia (BCT).

    In contrast to the last two years, this growth is not due (largely) to the depreciation of the Tunisian dinar, since the exchange rate of the Tunisian dinar shows a clear improvement against the main foreign currencies namely the dollar and the euro since the beginning of the current year.

    Minister of Tourism René Trabelsi had indicated that the number of foreign tourists visiting Tunisia will exceed 9 million this year, against 8.3 million in 2018.
