Comparing tourism spending, we find that the amount of foreign currency spent abroad by nationals remains higher than the amount of foreign exchange generated by non-resident inflows.

It is important to specify that tourism receipts through the travel item do not capture all revenue generated by tourism, the fact that much of the exchange takes place at the level of the parallel foreign exchange market, especially by Algerians.
