Travel and Tourism - Tunisia - February 2017

“The number of Russian tourists to Tunisia has grown six-fold to around 600,000 but there is still enough room for the Brits. We hope that there will be at least a partial relaxation of the travel ban for UK citizens. Our economy needs hard currencies like the Pound, the Euro and the Dollar…”
- Jessica Kelly, Senior Tourism Analyst
