Tunisian investment minister meets with IMF delegation

Tunisia’s Minister for Development, Investment and International Cooperation, Zied Laahari, met with a delegation from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) led by Rothern Bjorn in Tunis, to monitor progress on implementation of structural economic reforms, according to a statement from the Tunisian Development Ministry.
The reforms are part of an aid package granted to Tunisia, the results of which are linked to the disbursement of the third tranche of a 2.9-billion-dollar loan to Tunisia with the IMF’s Extended Fund Facility (EFF).
The statement said the meeting, which focused on the cooperation programme between Tunisia and the IMF, gave Laadhari a chance to illustrate the country’s current economic and financial situation as well as expectations for improvement, in light of several positive developments including 2.1% growth in the 3rd quarter of 2017.
Laadhari also listed reforms the country has undertaken, in particular those related to improving the business climate and investment governance, through adoption of a new investment code as well as the establishment of a High Commission on Investment.
