Tunisia - Current Account

The economy continued to accelerate in the second quarter after a strong showing in Q1. It was buttressed by the dynamism of its tourism sector—with revenues jumping 11% year-on-year in H1—as well as a pick-up in manufacturing activity and a recovery in exports of phosphates, which had been hindered by months-long strikes in Q1. However, the country recently appeared to be at an impasse to unlock the next loan tranche of its IMF adjustment program. Progress on IMF-backed reforms is being stalled by the political weakness of Prime Minister Youssef Chahed, who lost support from his own party in recent months amid growing civil unrest.
