The aim of this article is to review: a) the agreements related to the export of the olive oil between Tunisia and the European Union (EU) and b) the agricultural policies and incentives enforced by the government to increase the export of olive oil. For the above mentioned aims, we obtained and analyzed data from the Ministry of Agriculture in order to analyze them and find the policies and incentives that help to increase the export of olive oil.
