Bottom Line: 

The past decade has been hard on Tunisian industry. Political instability has weakened sectoral policy. Regular labor stoppages drove down manufacturing output. Security concerns have discouraged foreign and domestic investors from expanding. The dire budgetary situation and the risk of debt default have weakened overall business confidence. But the economic balance that might come from the IMF deal could improve the sector’s overall prospects.
