Oxford Business Group (OBG) is partnering with the Foreign Investment Promotion Agency (FIPA-Tunisia) in the production of the first-ever report on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and the country’s recovery strategy.
The report, entitled Tunisia Covid-19 Response Report (CRR), will present Tunisia’s response to the coronavirus crisis in a clear and accessible format that will highlight key data and graphics related to the country’s socio-economic landscape.
The report is part of a series of reports currently being developed by the international research and consultancy firm and its partners, which will complement other essential and highly relevant research tools, including a series of articles and interviews providing a country-specific assessment of the economic impact of the Covid-19, the Covid-19 Economic Impact Assessments.
Divided into several distinct parts, the RRC report on Tunisia will provide an overview of the macroeconomic and political situation in the country before the coronavirus crisis. It will then monitor the spread of the virus within the country, comparing the situation with that of other countries, and outline the immediate response strategy adopted by the public and private sectors.
Besides, the report will present an economic assessment of the epidemic and an estimate of its medium-term impact on key sectors of the economy for the second quarter of 2020, also analysing the fiscal measures announced by the Government in response to the crisis and the aid and recovery mechanisms that have been put in place temporarily. The role of institutions such as FIPA-Tunisia and the Tunisia Investment Authority-TIA- in supporting foreign and local companies will also be discussed, as will the projects and other initiatives currently under preparation in Tunisia.
Subscribers will then find a detailed description of the measures taken to initiate recovery in the longer term, as well as an analysis of the sectors that will be designated as priorities for recovery and the expected emergence of new ways of doing business, including the growing role of technology and innovation as drivers of socio-economic success.
