Revenues from fruit exports rise 35%

Fruit export revenues increased by 35 percent from January 1 to November 20, 2017, compared to 2016, standing at 58.615 million dinars (MD) for 23,780 tonnes of exported fruit, the Ministry of Agriculture, Water Resources and Fisheries said in a statement Tuesday.

The improvement is due to an acceleration of the pace of exports to new markets with a slight increase in export volumes of 2.7%.

These include the Qatari market (+ 1094% in quantities exported, i.e. 11 times) and the Kuwaiti market (+ 118% in quantities exported and 152% in value).

The Tunisian fruit export to the Russian market also posted a rise of 140% in terms of value and 171% in terms of quantities exported.

This is the same for the UAE market, where the increase was around 36% in quantities exported and 58% in value.

Only exports to the traditional Libyan market have fallen, the ministry said without providing a figure on that issue.
