Economic Snapshots

While there is room for a stronger recovery, growth prospects have been ticking upward over the past 12 months and, benefitting from a more stable political environment, the country now has a strong base from which to boost output and revenues. Equally importantly, Tunisia is seeing improvements in export competitiveness and the trade deficit. To help encourage this trend further, the authorities are implementing a range of economic reforms and initiatives, such as a new investment law passed in September 2016 that should help to raise the pace of economic expansion in coming years.
