  • 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.

Current EBRD forecast for Tunisia’s Real GDP Growth in 2022 2.0%

Current EBRD forecast for Tunisia’s Real GDP Growth in 2023 2.5%

The recovery in Tunisia was moderate in 2021, with GDP growth of 3.5 per cent, driven by the rebound in manufacturing, mining and trade, but tourism and services continued to be held back by Covid-19 restrictions (for most of the year) and agriculture (and agri-foods industries) contracted. The growth outlook for 2022 and 2023 is subdued (at 2.0 and 2.5 per cent GDP growth respectively). The war on Ukraine and rise in prices (notably oil and wheat) will hit both households and the public budget, the latter because of government subsidies.
