Tunisia’s growth is expected to pick up to 2.5 percent in 2017 from 1.3 percent in 2016, but significant macroeconomic challenges persist, said the IMF in a statement. Also, the IMF and Tunisia agreed that urgent action is needed on fiscal policies and delayed reforms. Overall, “the Tunisian economy has remained resilient in a difficult domestic and international environment,” assessed Björn Rother, IMF mission chief to Tunisia.
