Tunisia Economy

The country is working to gradually improve its economic indicators by implementing tough, yet necessary, structural reforms. Although significant strides have been made since 2011, Tunisia continues to face acute macroeconomic imbalances. While reform efforts have suffered from changing administrations in the years following the revolution, in 2018 growth is projected to pick up to 3%, according to the IMF, or 2.8% by government estimates. Both are higher than the trend Tunisia has experienced in the years since the 2011 revolution, which have seen average growth of 2% per annum. This chapter contains interviews with Youssef Chahed, Head of Government; and Samir Majoul, President, Tunisian Union of Industry, Trade and Handicrafts.
