If this is calculated per inhabitant, taking purchasing power parity into account, then Tunisia ranks 115th in the list of the richest countries.

Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic

Overall, the gross domestic product in Tunisia in 2020 increased from 41.91 billion US dollars to 42.54 billion US dollars. Certainly, there have been shifts in numerous sectors of the economy, but a 1.5 percent increase has been rather unusual this year. While most countries have suffered significant losses, Tunisia has certainly held its own. The tourism sector alone slumped by around 62 percent. The unemployment rate rose from 15.1 to 16.6 percent. The inflation rate fell from 6.7 percent previously to 5.6 percent by the end of 2020.
