(MENAFN) Marie Francoise Marie Nelly, the World Bank Country Director for the Maghreb and Malta, predicted that Tunisia's economy would grow by 2.5 per cent in 2018.

Her remarks came as a response to journalists' questions during her participation in the signing of two financing agreements with Tunisia, Nelly said that "there are good signs for the local economy, especially at the beginning of this year, as the manufacturing sector regained its momentum, and tourism indicators improved."

Tunisia's economy registered growth rates of 1,9 in 2017 and 2,5 per cent in the first quarter of 2018.

"There are signs of improved investment, but more work needs to be done to bring more investment," said the World Bank official at the event held in Tunis.
