Public-private partnerships in Tunisia


Public-private partnerships (PPPs) can play an important role for inclusive and sustainable growth in Tunisia. Towards this end, the Government of Tunisia is working with the OECD to operationalise the country's new PPP law, voted in November 2015, designed to promote transparency, efficiency and effectiveness of public spending, and to help the government of Tunisia meet its public policy objectives.

The outcomes of this project are presented in three reports (in French) providing:

These reports provide recommendations to improve the practices, structure and competency frameworks governing PPPs in Tunisia. They were complemented by training workshops with local and international experts who aimed to strengthen the capacity of the Tunisian administration through an exchange of experiences and international best practices.

This work takes place within the framework of the MENA Transition Fund Project which was launched by the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the OECD in support of the Tunisian Government in 2013. It is funded by the Deauville Partnership and the Middle Income Country Technical Assistance Fund.
