(TAP) - The Gafsa Phosphates Company (GPC) was able to produce 2.7 million tonnes of commercial phosphate during the first nine months of 2019.

This volume is far from the targets set (-43%) which aimed for a production of 4.3 million tonnes from January to September 2019, according to the communication officer at the CPG.

The quantities produced are close to those recorded during the same period last year when production reached 2.6 million tonnes.

In response to these results, the GPC ruled out the possibility of achieving the expected 2019 targets of 6 million tonnes of production, he added.

The same source claimed that these results are due to the interruption of production on several occasions due to the protest movements staged at phosphate production sites, recalling that the activity of the Kef Eddour laundry, one of the largest GPC laundries for processing ore, remained suspended for weeks in July and August due to the sit-in observed by unemployed people.
