Tunisia’s agricultural sector wins best performance prize at AU summit

Tunisia’s agricultural sector won the Special Prize of the Best Performance for 2020 in the 33rd African Union Summit held on February 9-10 in Addis-Ababa, Ethiopia.

The prize is awarded to countries which have been able to implement the Malabo Declaration on the Accelerated Agricultural Growth and Transformation for Shared Prosperity and Improved Livelihoods in Africa.

Agricultural output is key to the Tunisian economy, accounting for 12 to 16 % of the GDP.

Launched in 2014 at the end of the 23rd ordinary session of the Arab-African Summit in Equatorial Guinea, the Malabo Declaration calls for increased investment in agriculture through the African continent.
