Tunisia

Tunisia Economic Outlook

  • The economy is growing slowly – an expected 2.4% in 2014 (2.3% the previous year) – amid international uncertainty, notably economic problems and weak growth in the euro zone, Tunisia’s main trade partner.
  • Four years of political transition ended in 2014 with elections held and a new constitution approved. Vigilance was heightened to restore security throughout the country. Structural reforms and new investment are needed to help economic transformation and pull the country out of the crisis.
  • Regional disparities continue to grow, despite policies implemented since independence, so a medium- and long-term general strategy is needed.
