Tunisia recorded a 17.4 per cent leap in the number of tourism arrivals. 592,000 visitors arrived in Tunisia from January to March 2019, the Ministry of Tourism announced.
Besides, hard currency tourism revenues registered a significant 35.1 per cent surge to stand at USD262.6 million during the first quarter of the year, the ministry revealed.
These increases are attributed to a massive turnover of traditional European markets along with a hike in booking to the Tunisian destinations, explained Minister of Tourism Rene Trabelsi.
During the first three months of the year, Tunisia received 496,000 Algerian guests to come at the top of the list within the region, while welcoming 473,000 Libyans.
