Unemployment in Tunisia

Tunisia - Unemployment

After GDP growth fell to a three-year low in Q1 on declining agricultural and industrial output and a weak external sector, economic momentum appears to have remained subdued in Q2. In particular, merchandise trade data shows that exports contracted in May and June, although imports also declined in the same months, which could have supported the external sector’s contribution to growth. Moreover, industrial production contracted again in April and May, as it had throughout Q1. On 25 July, President Beji Caid Essebsi died, causing early presidential elections to be scheduled for 15 September. In the same month, the IMF concluded its visit to Tunisia and urged the government to continue pursuing fiscal consolidation to ensure public debt remains sustainable.
