(TAP) - Prime Minister Youssef Chahed announced Saturday the launch of a major campaign to encourage Tunisians to consume local products.

During his address to the House of People’s Representatives (HPR) to present the draft 2019 State budget and draft 2019 Finance Law, Chahed called for the need to consume Tunisian products to reduce imports and deficit so as to improve the dinar exchange rate and the citizen’s purchasing power.

Consume Tunisian, said the PM, will undoubtedly boost the growth of Tunisian businesses and create wealth and jobs, adding that "every Tunisian product consumed reduces the cost of import, preserves our reserve stock in foreign currency and creates additional jobs for all Tunisians."

Chahed arrived to the Parliament aboard a black WallysCar, designed and manufactured in Tunisia
