Tunisia restarts phosphate exports, plans to double next year

Tunisia has resumed phosphate exports after 11 years and expects to dispatch more than 300,000 tonnes this year on a surge in global demand and at least 600,000 tonnes by next year, a senior official at the national phosphate company reports on Tuesday.

Tunisia, which is experiencing its worst financial crisis ever, is looking to recover its position as a top exporter to take advantage of the sharp rise in fertilizer prices due to the war in Ukraine.

The official added that Tunisia has seen demand from France, Pakistan, Brazil, Indonesia, and Turkey.

” With the achievement of sufficient stocks for local customers, we are moving towards accelerating the pace of export and we expect to reach 300,000 tons this year, 600,000 tons next year, which means the same level as 2010, “he said.
