The growth rate of the Tunisian economy is expected to reach 2.2% in 2012, according to projections of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), published on Tuesday.

This rate is expected to grow to 3.5% in 2013, knowing that the rate of GDP growth was negative (-0.8%) in 2011.

According to some projections, the inflation rate should be around 5% in 2012 against 3.5% in 2011. However, this rate would be reduced to 4% in 2013.
