Tunis/Tunisia — The inflation rate stabilised at 6.3% in November, against 6.5% in October and 6.7% in September, according to the National Institute of Statistics (INS).

In November 2019, food prices rose by 6.3% year-on-year, due to the 11.1% increase in meat prices, cheese and eggs 7.7% and fruit 6.4%, according to the INS.

Over a year, the prices of manufactured products edged up 7.8% due to the 9.8% rise in the prices of household cleaning products and building materials by 8.1%.
