The IMF Country Reports Series covers economic and financial developments and trends in member countries. Each report, prepared by a staff team after discussions with officials of the country, is published at the option of the member.
This report evaluates the Observance of Standards and Codes on data dissemination, fiscal transparency, the transparency of monetary policy, banking supervision, and securities market regulation for Tunisia. The assessment reveals that Tunisia has already achieved a considerable degree of transparency in fiscal management. Further improvements in data preparation and dissemination have come about recently during the process of subscribing to the Special Data Dissemination Standards. In addition, the implementation of the new tax code (code des procedures fiscales) has further clarified the rights and obligations of taxpayers and the government on matters relating to taxation.
