Tunisia - Agricultural Policy Review (English)

Tunisia's farm sector is entering new territory, with higher incomes, lower poverty rates, and new consumer tastes, market structures and trade agreements. Policymakers face challenges that simply did not exist a decade ago and are asking whether the solutions o f the past are still relevant. In 2004, therefore, the Government asked the World Bank to review the entire farm sector for the first time in more than 20 years. This report i s based on 11 background papers prepared during 2005, with support from the FAO/CP and the Agence franqaise de developpement. The starting point for the review is the Tunisian government's own policy objectives, This report briefly describes the sector's past achievements in terms o f these objectives, and then presents evidence that it could do even better. This raises the question: how could Government help the farm sector realize its potential more completely. To answer this question, the study looks in detail at the different building-blocks o f agricultural competitiveness: trade policy, domestic policies and institutions, producer groupings.
