The EU today disbursed a €100 million loan to Tunisia, 10 days after giving the green light for the third and final tranche of the €300 million Macro-Financial Assistance programme to Tunisia, adopted in May 2014.

The funding is part of the EU’s comprehensive efforts to help Tunisia respond to the severe economic difficulties it is facing and the persistent political instability in the region. It supports Tunisia’s process of economic recovery, both by providing funding with favourable terms, and by encouraging the implementation of a number of important policy measures agreed between the EU and Tunisia.

This first macro-financial assistance operation to Tunisia will be followed by a second MFA programme worth €500 million, also in the form of loans. Disbursements under this second programme are expected in the course of 2017 and in the first half of 2018.
