The Bank’s vice-governor for the Middle East and North Africa, Farid Belhaj, made the announcement following talks with Tunisian President Kaïs Saied.
According to a press release from the Tunisian presidency, this aid will benefit around one million families as part of a social program to be implemented under the supervision of the President of the Republic.
Discussions focused on Tunisia’s financial and economic situation and ways to help the country overcome the difficulties it is going through.
President Saied said that the Tunisian authorities were in the process of recovering funds hidden abroad by former President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali and his close associates but that it faces “several obstacles”, mainly judicial.
Mr. Belhaj expressed the will of the World Bank, through its expertise and experience, to help Tunisia find the funds. (PANA / NAN)
