TAP ( http://www.tap.info.tn ) writes :

The guidance note of the strategic development plan 2016-2020 predicts an ambitious growth rate of 5% in the next five years, against 1.5% achieved between 2011 and 2015.

Developed by the Ministry of Development, International Co-operation and Investment, the growth pattern for 2016-2020 released Wednesday, was submitted mainly to government coalition parties (Nidaa Tounes, Ennahdha, Afek Tounes and the Free Patriotic Union). It presents an alternative development model that sets the bar very high, targeting more “economic efficiency based on innovation and partnership, social inclusion and sustainable development.”

Growth conditioned by boost of investments

The achievement of this ambitious growth rate remains dependent on a set of hypotheses, including particularly the gradual recovery of the economic activity in the first two years of the five-year plan period to achieve the economic boost from 2018.

According to the guidance note, the essential conditions for the recovery of the national economy are “the significant development of the investment effort, bringing the investment rate from 18.5% of GDP in 2015 to 25% by 2020. The overall volume of investments will accordingly reach 125 billion dinars for the entire period.”
