Tunisia: Import Financing Restored for Consumer Products

Effective December 21, 2018, Tunisia repealed its ban on import financing for select imported consumer goods it deemed as “non-essential,” which earlier came into effect October 27, 2017 (See GAIN report: No More Import Financing for Consumer Products). From November 2017-October 2018, U.S. exports of targeted agricultural products collapsed 63.19 percent. Products most negatively affected were almonds, cheese, sauces and condiments, cocoa preparations, and breads, pastries and cakes.
