Oxford Business Group’s Africa research comes in several different forms, from business confidence surveys and face-to-face interviews, to monthly sector updates and annual country analyses.
OBG’s African economies have rolled out new capital market instruments and more transparent Customs procedures; they have paved the way for bigger and better-capitalised banks and the emergence of new innovative technologies; and they have made it easier for citizens to access everything from microcredit to health insurance to a well-paying job.
Seven years after the revolution, Tunisia continues to work on consolidating economic growth, with activity in a variety of sectors suggesting it is making good progress with this. Oxford Business Group’s inaugural OBG Business Barometer: Tunisia CEO Survey shows that CEOs are relatively optimistic: 77% have either positive or very positive expectations of local business conditions in the next 12 months, and approximately half forecast GDP growth of 2-3% over the same period. However, respondents highlighted that Tunisia is most in need of leadership and research and development skills to make further headway.
