Tunisia Now Fiscally Transparent, Says World Bank

The World Bank has praised Tunisian authorities for initiatives to improve transparency surrounding tax collections and spending.

In particular, the World Bank praised them for launching a new fiscal transparency portal, called "Mizaniatouna" or "Our Budget," which includes financial information dating back to 2008. According to the World Bank, the data on how the Government spends tax revenues is comprehensive, disaggregated, user-friendly, and fully accessible.

"Tunisia's transition from being one of the most secretive regimes in the region to becoming the front-runner in terms of fiscal transparency is a very fulfilling experience," said Fabian Seiderer, the Bank's Senior Public Sector Specialist. "It offers great opportunities for deeper citizen engagement to improve the transparency and accountability of key public programs and services."
