(TAP) – Overall phosphate production did not exceed 2,136 thousand tonnes until the end of July 2020, against projections of 3,327 thousand tonnes, according to indicators published by the Gafsa Phosphates Company (CPG) on Monday.

The extraction was limited to 3893 thousand tonnes until the end of July 2020, while it was planned to extract about 8,000 thousand tonnes during this period.

The Ministry of Energy, a few days ago, warned against the seriousness of the situation in the CPG; production was almost blocked in July because of sit-ins and social protests.

The ministry called on the social partners to consider the seriousness of the situation, promising to eagerly apply the law against “those who block production and transport."
