The International Monetary Fund (IMF) expressed its talks with Tunisian authorities for a staff-level agreement on a rescue package would continue “over the coming weeks”.
It said it had made “good progress” in talks with the authorities over a reform package the government is proposing as part of the overall deal.
“The authorities are making important progress with their economic agenda, coordinating well across ministries and agencies around a shared vision that is sound. It is now critical to accelerate implementation of that agenda,” the fund said.
“Broad buy-in will be essential to accomplish the urgent task of reducing macroeconomic imbalances, shore up stability and support the job-creating growth that is required to activate the substantial economic potential of Tunisia,” it added.
