Technical assistance to facilitate the implementation by the GBO unit and other actors of the reform decisions and guidelines adopted by the Council of Restricted Ministers

The events of January 2011 highlighted the precarious socio-economic situation of Tunisia, particularly regarding unemployment. The result is the same for poverty affecting people living in disadvantaged areas within the country where disputes have started. If the revolution brings hope, its macroeconomic consequences are severe in the short term. In addition to property damage, the economy has had to do with increased insecurity as well as a collapse in tourism receipts and a decline in Foreign Direct Investments. In this context, the Government has prepared a program combining economic and social measures targeted for 2012 and medium term guidance. The economic and social policy priority of the Provisional Government is given to support the recovery of economic activity, the restoration of trust to boost domestic and foreign investment, as well as boosting job creation. Monitoring of public finances is one of the major components of this agenda. To this end, the Tunisian government has decided to develop, with the support of its donors (World Bank and European Union), the reform of fiscal policy to streamline costs and increase the efficiency and impact. Therefore, the mission’ds objective was to mobilize specific technical expertise to facilitate the implementation by the GBO unit and other actors of the reform decisions and guidelines adopted by the Council of Ministers Restricted and, in coordination with activities planned as part of the twinning of Support GBO
