Abstract

In this study, we try to evaluate the specialization of the Tunisian international trade in relation to the European Union’s (EU-28) market during the 2004/2015 period. Trade between Tunisia and the EU has grown significantly since the signing of an EU-Tunisia Association Agreement in 1995. The examination of relative trade benefits showed that Tunisia has the highest relative trade advantage in the EU-28 in mineral fuels, lubricants and related materials (SITC 3). On the other hand, the need for modernization and restructuring of their productive production facilities stimulated the European exports of capital goods and high-tech products (chemicals and related products (SITC 5) and machinery and transport equipment (SITC 7)). The crossed trading of similar products also intensified sharply over the 2004/2015 period.
