    (ANSAmed) - TUNIS, OCTOBER 28 - Tunisia appears to be starting to change a negative trend in tourism after a terrible 2020. Financial revenues from the sector have increased by 7% from January 1, 2020 to October 20, 2021, compared to the same period in 2020. The data was released by Tourism Minister Mohamed Moez Belhassine on the sidelines of the opening in the capital of the 15th edition of the International exhibition of agriculture, agricultural machinery and fisheries 'SIAMAP 2021'.

    He also said that the number of overnight stays has increased by nearly 19%, while the number of arrivals has grown by 3%.

    Belhassine has also reported the return of British, German and Russian tourists after their countries removed Tunisia from their red list, suggesting a gradual recovery of touristic activity over the next period, especially thanks to an improvement of the epidemiological situation in the country. In the same context, he announced the development of a plan to re-launch industry which will be adopted soon and will include measures regarding the offer and promotion for tourism.

    Belhassine also said that his department is working on the revision of the juridical framework regulating the sector to encourage investments to re-launch regional development inside the country. (ANSAmed).
