The draft report was discussed at a meeting of the Economic and Development Review Committee on 2 November 2021, with participation of representatives of the Tunisian authorities.

The Survey was prepared by Andrea Goldstein and Robert Grundke, under the supervision of Isabelle Joumard. The special chapter greatly benefitted from financial and logistical support by the GIZ (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit). Research inputs by Przemyslav Kowalski from the OECD Trade and Agriculture Directorate, Flavio Calvino, Francesco Manaresi, and Rudy Verlhac from the DynEmp team of the OECD Directorate for Science, Technology and Innovation, Steven Cassimon, Bishoy Sadek, Jibrane Soltani, and Youssef Charfi are gratefully acknowledged. The Embassies of France, Germany and Italy in Tunisia supported the field research for the special chapter. Other valuable inputs and comments were received from the OECD’s Directorate for Financial and Enterprise Affairs; the Centre for Tax Policy and Administration; and the Directorate for Employment, Labour and Social Affairs. Anne Legendre, Steven Cassimon and Lutécia Daniel provided statistical assistance and Gemma Martinez provided editorial support. The previous OECD Economic Survey of Tunisia was issued in March 2018.
