Tunisian economy improves as World Bank asks for reforms
The recent improved indicators posted by the Tunisian economy, notably the growth rate, foreign investments, tourism and agriculture, are all positive signs which could be further ameliorated by means of carrying on the reform process, said World Bank (WB) Executive Director Jawad Talat.
During his talk, on Monday in Tunis, with Investment and International Co-operation Minister Riadh Bettaieb, Mr. Talat stressed the need to reform the banking system, a key sector of development and investment, and further strengthen the small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and promote the tourist sector.
The World Bank official expressed his institution's will to support Tunisia to guarantee the success of its programmes and achievement of the hoped-for objectives.
