    (ANSAmed) - TUNIS, JUNE 21 - Revenue from the tourism sector in Tunisia from January to June 10, 2022 rose by 51% compared with the same period the previous year to 1.1 billion dinars, or about 336,288,112 euros.

    This was seen in the latest monetary and financial figures published by the Tunisian central back (BCT), which noted that, in the same upward trend, the cumulative labour income had increased by 15.8%, compared to the same period of 2021, to 3.1 billion dinars.

    All of these revenues can barely finance the accumulated external debt services which grew from 3.4 billion dinars in June 2021 to 3.7 billion dinars currently, up 7.8%, the BCT noted.

    BCT data also highlighted an improvement in net foreign exchange reserves which amounted to 24.2 billion dinars, until June 10, 2022, against 21.3 billion dinars, on the same date of the previous year.

    On the money market, total interbank transactions have risen by 27.8%, to nearly 2 billion dinars, until June 17. The Overall refinancing volume, on its part, saw a 37.6% rise to 11.1 billion dinars on the same date. (ANSAmed).
