IMF Urges Tunisian Consensus Before Reform Program


Tunisia should explain the country’s fragile economic situation to its people and ensure they support any planned reforms before discussing a new program with the International Monetary Fund, a fund official said.

A key priority for the government will be to devise a mechanism to deal with mounting debts on the part of state-owned entities - dues which account for about 40% of the gross domestic product, the fund’s mission chief to the North African nation, Chris Geiregat, said Tuesday in a press briefing.
