Current EBRD forecast for Tunisia’s Real GDP Growth in 2021 2.5%

Current EBRD forecast for Tunisia’s Real GDP Growth in 2022 3.3%

GDP in Tunisia continued to contract in the first quarter of 2021, by 1.7 per cent year-on-year, but started to recover in the second quarter, where growth was 16.2 per cent year-on-year. This reflects base effects, as well as the recovery in the export-driven manufacturing sector.
However, the tourism and transport sectors continued to be affected by Covid-19 restrictions, and agriculture contracted after a record year in 2020. Inflation has fallen but remains relatively high, at 5.5 per cent year-on-year in the first three quarters of 2021, driven by food price growth and the reduction in subsidies. GDP is projected to recover modestly by just 2.5 per cent in 2021, before picking up to 3.3 per cent in 2022.
