USA's foreign trade with Tunisia, exports to Tunisia and imports from Tunisia in Juli 2021


The text of the following analysis is produced by a computer program. The program is a test version and its rule base at this stage is still quite limited.

In Juli Tunisia was USA's 91. most important foreign trade partner. Decrease from the previous month was 9 places. Most of the value of trade between the countries consists of the import to USA. Amounting trade to worth of $116 million was 20.0 per cent bigger than in Juli of the previous year. In Juli the trade balance with Tunisia was $74 million in deficit for United States of America.

The value of imports from Tunisia was 75.1 per cent higher than in Juli of the previous year, thus amounting to $95 million. Major product categories of imports from Tunisia were Sitc562 (fertilizers (other than those of group 272)), representing 48.2 percent of imports, Sitc421 (fixed vegetable fats and oils, *soft*, crude, refined or fractionated) 11.7 % and Sitc772 (electrical apparatus for switching or protecting electrical circuits or for making connections to or in electrical circuits (e.g., switches, relays, fuses, lightning arresters, voltage limiters, surge suppressors, plugs and sockets, lamp-holders and) 4.0 % of the imports.

The value of exports to Tunisia declined considerably,by 50.5 per cent, compared to in Juli of the previous year, thus amounting to $21 million in Juli 2021. The largest product groups of exports were: Sitc335 (residual petroleum products, n.e.s., and related materials), which represented a share of 18.6 per cent of total exports, Sitc573 (polymers of vinyl chloride or of other halogenated olefins, in primary forms) 7.1 % and Sitc571 (polymers of ethylene, in primary forms) 6.5 % of the exports.

Significant increase in trade in goods in early 2021

During January-Juli trade in goods with Tunisia has grown slower than USA's trade in goods with the rest of the world. During this year trade in goods between countries was significantly higher than in January-Juli of the previous year. Growth was as high as 21.6471764820388 per cent and the value of the trade increased to $658 million. During January-Juli the value of imports was $439 million. The export value was $219 million. Compared to the corresponding period of the previous year, the value of imports increased by 29.1% and the value of exports by 9.0%. The largest product group in terms of imports has been Sitc421 (fixed vegetable fats and oils, *soft*, crude, refined or fractionated), worth $154 million. In export the largest value had Sitc044 (maize (not including sweet corn), unmilled), worth being $34 million. From USA's point of view, the trade balance between the countries in January-Juli remained in deficit. The trade deficit was $220 million.
