- The new government that took office in February 2015 has continued the economic recovery plan launched in 2011, with a striking 21.6% increase in investment in 2015.
- The worsening security situation after the terrorist attacks in Sousse and Tunis and rising social unrest affected growth, which is not expected to exceed 0.5% in 2015, as the country entered a recession in the second quarter of the year.
- The start of decentralisation in 2015 and municipal elections in 2016 should boost local democracy, a key to successful and sustainable urban policy that involves citizens.
