Tunisia overview

Sea sight

In Tunisia, EBRD strategic priorities focus on:

  • Supporting Tunisia’s competitiveness by opening markets, strengthening governance, and levelling the playing field.
  • Promoting economic inclusion for women, young people and populations living in remote areas through private sector engagement.
  • Strengthening the resilience of the financial sector and broadening access to finance.
  • Supporting Tunisia’s green economy transition.

The EBRD’s Tunisia country strategy was approved on 12 December 2018

Current EBRD forecast for Tunisia’s Real GDP Growth in 2023 2.0%

Current EBRD forecast for Tunisia’s Real GDP Growth in 2024 2.3%

Tunisia’s economic performance has been on a downward path since 2021. A modest post-pandemic recovery of 2.4 per cent in 2022 is expected to be followed by growth of 1.9 per cent in 2023, as adverse external conditions, high inflation and social unrest weigh on the economic outlook.
Growth in 2024 could pick up to 2.5 per cent on the back of strong tourism, phosphate sales and an agreement with the IMF. However, downside risks are high, reflecting limited fiscal space, lack of access to external financing, a restrictive business environment, delays in reform implementation, dependence on tourism and climate risks.
