Project Description

According to bank provided information, the goal of PAREIS is to contribute to economic recovery by improving the investment climate, job protection and social inclusion. Its main objective is to support the Tunisian Government in its efforts to mitigate the economic and social impacts of COVID 19 by speeding up economic recovery, safeguarding jobs and strengthening social inclusion.

The project is an AfDB loan of EUR 60 million, to the Republic of Tunisia to finance the Economic Recovery and Social Inclusion Support Programme - PAREIS. This operation, which is the Bank's contribution to multi-donor budget support (2020-2022) for Tunisia, is intended to support post COVID-19 economic recovery while responding more efficiently to the social challenges exacerbated by the pandemic. PAREIS will, therefore, contribute to the achievement of the development objective of the Joint AFD-African Development Bank, World Bank-JICA-KfW Reform Support Programme aimed at strengthening macroeconomic stability in the near-term and gradually controlling the fiscal balances, while contributing to an appropriate response to social demand, in the medium term. The operation's two focus areas are: (i) acceleration of quick-impact reforms likely to speed up economic recovery and job protection; and (ii) social spending efficiency and efficacy through streamlining and better targeting of social assistance programmes.
