Promoting Inclusion in Tunisia's 5-Year Strategic Plan

The GFI Tunisia Inclusive Labor Initiative (TILI) has worked with the Tunisian Ministry of Employment for several years to highlight the issue of informality. Specifically, this work is intended to better include and transition Tunisia’s large informal sector into the formal economy. GFI is pleased to announce that as a result of this work, the Ministry of Employment has included formalization of Tunisia’s labor market as one of its key priorities in the 2016-2020 strategic plan. This achievement comes after TILI prioritized partnership with the Ministry to promote the inclusion of informality and potential steps towards formalization in its efforts. GFI will be working closely with the Government of Tunisia to implement a plan to formalize its labor market and will be a formal partner of the Ministry in its efforts to achieve this strategic plan objective.
