The fallout from the Arab Spring significantly dampened growth in Tunisia - from which the country still has yet to fully recover - but key sectors have seen a steady improvement, offering promising medium-term prospects.

  • Banking: Fuelling The Economy - Demand for credit has risen steadily in recent years, with total loans growing at a compound annual rate of over 11% since 2009.
  • Agriculture: On The Rise - Agricultural exports surged in 2015, driven in part by poor olive harvests in Italy and Spain, leading to a rise in prices and demand for Tunisian olive oil.
  • Industry: Economic Mainstay - Manufacturing continues to play a key role in the economy, in large part thanks to the country’s strong automotive sector.
  • Telecoms & IT: Reaching Out - Driven in part by the young, tech-savvy population and solid IT infrastructure, internet usage has risen strongly in Tunisia.
