Industry in Tunisia
Tunisia - IndustryEconomic growth slightly softened in the third quarter, largely due to a sharp downturn in the oil and chemicals sectors. Meanwhile, the country’s political crisis worsened in recent weeks, boding poorly for growth in Q4 and beyond. Amid growing tensions with President Essebsi, on 5 November Prime Minister Youssef Chahed reshuffled his cabinet. Two weeks later, on 22 November, 650,000 public workers went on strike to protest the government’s refusal to raise wages. The decision followed pressure by the IMF and threats to cut Tunisia’s funding, which could have dealt a crippling blow given the country’s rapidly depleting foreign reserves.
