Tunisia secures loan for improved digital public services

The African Development Bank has approved a EUR 71.56 million loan to strengthen Tunisia’s public services through digitalisation. The Tunisian government is contributing EUR 63.4 million, bringing the total cost of the project to EUR 134.96 million for its Digital Tunisia 2020 National Strategic Plan, which will be executed between 2018 and 2021.
The project is expected to strengthen public services through the use of digital platforms and includes the implementation of online administrative services, sectoral information services, a digital ID system, and a data exchange platform. An important feature of the project is its broad geographical coverage. It will radically cut the current regional disparities so that all the Tunisian people will have access to grassroots services online, whether they live in urban areas or rural communities, north or south of the country, the bank said.
