Tourism revenues increase by 13.7% late in January 2024 (BCT)

Cumulative tourist revenues increased by 13.7%, in January 2024, to 473 million dinars (MD), compared to the same period of 2023, according to data published on Friday, by the Central Bank of Tunisia (BCT).

Workers’ remittances increased slightly by 4%, from 605 MD, at the end of January 2023, to nearly 630 MD, at the end of January 2024.

The improvement in tourism revenues and workers’ remittances was behind the increase in net foreign exchange reserves, which exceeded 25.8 billion dinars (the equivalent of 118 days of imports), as of February 9, 2024, against 22.2 billion dinars (96 days of import), at the beginning of February 2023.

Regarding the cumulative foreign debt services, they remain almost unchanged (890 MD), as of January 31, 2024.
