Fiscal Balance in Tunisia

Tunisia Fiscal Balance | Economic News & Forecasts

Tunisia - Fiscal Balance

Economic activity likely remained downbeat in the fourth quarter: Industrial production contracted for the 15th straight month in November, while merchandise exports declined sharply and credit growth slowed through the period. On a more positive note, strong tourism figures for the year should have aided activity. In other news, President Kais Saied selected Elyes Fakhfakh as prime minister-designate, after the previous nominee’s proposed government was rejected in early January. The former finance minister should put forward his proposed cabinet in February, which, if ratified by Parliament, will renew focus on economic policy. However, a failure to win parliamentary approval would lead to fresh elections and a prolonging of political paralysis.
