Tunisia: recovery but new structural reforms needed

Apr 3, 2018 | News

(03 April 2018) – The Tunisian economy is recovering, driven by good harvests and strong performance in the tourism sector, but further reforms are needed to ensure sustainable growth and higher living standards for all Tunisians, according to a new report from the OECD.


The first-ever OECD Economic Survey of Tunisia highlights the significant strides that have been made since the return to democratic rule, including increased participation in political processes, new freedoms of expression and association, a reduction in poverty rates and solid participation in global value chains.

The Survey also points out, however, the substantial challenges posed by weak job creation, high unemployment and unsustainable public finances.

It recommends structural reforms to speed up growth, boost employment, implement effective social policy and promote regional development.
