More about Tunisia
- REMZFAMILY: Modern history of Tunisia from World War I to today, covering all major events on politics, economy, society, and technology.
The Tunisian economy is one of the most dynamic in the Arab world. The country’s economic development is based on oil and phosphate extraction, the textile industry and tourism. With a gross national income (GNI) of (2017) US $ 3,500 per resident, Tunisia is one of the middle-income developing countries. The proportion of people living below the poverty line is around 4%; According to estimates (2016) the unemployment rate is 14.0%.
Foreign trade: Tunisia’s foreign trade balance has been chronically in deficit since the 1970s (import value in 2015: US $ 20.2 billion; export value: US $ 14.1 billion). The most important export goods are semi-finished products, textiles and leather goods, food, petroleum and phosphates. Mainly raw and semi-finished goods, capital goods, energy and lubricants, consumer goods and food are imported. The most important trading partners are France, Italy and Germany.
The share of the agricultural sector (including forestry and fisheries) in GDP fell from 16% in 1990 to 10.3% in 2015. The ownership structure is determined by a large number of small businesses. In the fertile north, cereals, fruit, vegetables, citrus fruits and grapevines are mainly grown. The central region is characterized by grain cultivation, olive tree plantations and pasture land. Olives are the most important agricultural product for export (mostly olive oil). In the south there are isolated oasis farms (date palms) and pastures. Around 52% of the agricultural area is used as arable land and for permanent crops, the remaining area as pasture land. The irrigated area (mostly small-scale field cultivation and tree cultures, especially in the north and in the oases) alone provides more than 25% of agricultural production.
Forestry: Larger contiguous forest stands only exist in the north-western mountainous region (cork and holm oaks) and in the western interior (Aleppo pines and holm oaks), but these have mostly been degenerated by browsing and overexploitation. The forest area is given as 6.6% of the total area of Tunisia. The state reforestation measures are showing initial success.
Fishing: The center of fishing is in Sfax on the Gulf of Gabès. The catch (mainly sardines, anchovies, shrimp and tuna) is (2014) 123 300 t. Fish and fish products are among the most important food exports.
In addition to phosphate mining (production in the central region near Gafsa / Metlaoui and west of Kalaa-Djerda), oil production (especially in the El Borma field in the south and in the continental shelf near the Kerkenna islands) and natural gas production (especially in the Gulf of Gabès) of great importance. Tunisia is one of the world’s largest producers of phosphates and one of the world’s largest exporters of phosphate fertilizers. Iron ore mining and salt production as well as the mining of lead and zinc ores, fluorspar and barite are less important.
Since the 1970s, the focus of industrial development has been on building up export-oriented, labor-intensive branches of industry. The share of industry in GDP including mining, energy and construction is 27.7% (2015). The most important branches of industry are the textile, leather and electrical industries, as well as the food and chemical industries, iron and steel processing, and motor vehicle assembly. The largest industrial locations are Tunis and the port cities of Sousse and Sfax; there is an oil refinery in Bizerte.
Tourism is concentrated on the coast and the island of Djerba. However, more and more tourist centers are being set up inland. In 2014, 24.8 million overnight stays and 417,900 cruise guests were counted. The foreign visitors came mainly from Germany, Algeria, France and Libya. In addition to the coasts, tourist destinations are above all the sites of the world cultural heritage. Tourism is one of the country’s most important sources of foreign currency, but has suffered severe losses over the past few years following terrorist attacks.

Northern Tunisia has a well-developed transport infrastructure; around 70% of the 2,165 km long national railway network is located in the northern part of the country. About 66% of the 19,400 km road network is paved. The 150 km long motorway from Tunis via Hammamet to Sousse has been completed. The most important port cities on the 1,300 km long coast are Tunis-La Goulette, Bizerte, Sfax, Sousse, Gabès, Zarzis and Skhirra (especially the oil port). The largest international airport is Tunis-Carthage (Carthage), those of Djerba, Monastir and Enfidha (opened in 2010) are almost exclusively for tourism.
