Tunisia is expected to record a growth rate of 3% in 2017, 3.7% in 2018 and 4% in 2019. Morocco is expected to post a growth rate of 4% and Algeria’s growth is expected to reach 2.9 percent, according to the latest Global Economic Prospects reported released Tuesday by the World Bank Group.
According to the same WB forecasts, growth in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region is expected to improve to 3.1% in 2017 against projected global growth of 2.7%, despite the decline in investment.
It should be noted that the World Bank's forecasts are based on the assumption of an oil price of $ 55 per barrel.
