Tunisia's investment minister says economy will shrink by 6.5% this year


TUNIS (Reuters) - Tunisia's economy will shrink by 6.5% this year because of the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the investment minister, Slim Azzabi, said on Monday.

Tunisia ended all restrictions on movement and businesses last month. However, the pandemic is hammering the tourism sector, which contributes nearly 10% of gross domestic product and is a key source of foreign currency.
