According to bank documents, the program objective is to support the Government of Tunisia effectively respond to the COVID-19 crisis and lay the foundation for strong post-crisis recovery by: (a) strengthening resilience and inclusion; (b) enabling private sector recovery; and (c) improving transparency and performance in the SOE sector.
The proposed Resilience and Recovery Emergency Development Policy Financing focuses on accelerating concrete reform actions where upstream consensus and urgency have been triggered by the COVID-19 crisis while building the foundations to tackling structural reforms that are critical for a strong recovery. The crisis has opened windows of opportunity to
advance reforms where consensus has strengthened or that have become more critical for Tunisia’s resilience, and reforms promoted by the proposed operation build on policies supported by previous DPFs and complementary advisory services and analytics (ASA), including a White Paper on Strategic Reforms (jointly prepared with the EU and EBRD). These
ASAs have allowed the identification of prior actions and phasing of reforms during intensive dialogue between the government and the WB
