IMF has agreed to pay Tunisia’s delayed loan tranche

International Monetary Fund (IMF) Head Office

The International Monetary Fund has agreed to pay out a $320 million second tranche of Tunisia’s loan programme after talks to agree on the government’s reform priorities, the IMF Tunisia mission chief said on Monday.

The portion of the $2.8 billion loan programme was delayed from December because of a lack of progress in reforms to cut public spending and overhaul state finances demanded by Tunisia’s multilateral lenders.
