This paper reviews Tunisia's movement to an agricultural export strategy as a method of creating rural economic growth. Having explained the economic logic and pitfalls of agro-export production, it then evaluates the Tunisian effort to develop an agricultural export industry first in general and then using a specific case study of strawberry adoption in Cap Bon. Results show that Tunisia has been successful in increasing agro-export production, though as yet not in using it to create equitable rural growth.
