Tunisia: IMF puts growth at 1.5% this year, 2.8% in 2017

The growth rate of the Tunisian economy would not exceed 1.5% at the end of the current year, said the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Regional Outlook – Middle East.

However, this rate would rise to 2.8% in 2017, according to IMF projections which place Tunisia at the bottom of the table of all the Arab oil importing countries except for Lebanon.

In terms of inflation, Tunisia will end the year with a rate of 3.7%, better than in 2015 (4.9%) but less than that in 2017 (3.9%).

Finally, and as regards the budget deficit, it will stand at 4.5% of GDP in late 2016 and fall to 3.6% next year.
