According to a recent report from BMI (Business Monitor International), Tunisia was ranked 12th, just before Lebanon, Iran, Libya, Yemen, Iraq, Gaza and Syria, at the level of political risk. Qatar was ranked first and Israel seventh.
The report justifies this ranking, with a total of 54 points out of 100, noting that “while the initial period of democratic transition, the election of a National Constituent Assembly went relatively smoothly, much work remains to be done.
The new structure (Constituent Assembly) will prepare the country for a permanent government, and as it has responsibility, we expect that the general living conditions of Tunisian citizens remain difficult for the next few quarters.
“The Tunisian people waiting since January 2011 for political and economic changes and seeing that improvement of economic conditions will occur only in the medium term, we expect that the country’s political risk remains high.”
