Tunisia Wants To Leave “Tax Haven” Blacklist

Tunisia is seeking to persuade the EU to take it off a tax haven blacklist. President Beji Caid Sebsi has said friendly EU states led by France are helping Tunisia to fight its inclusion on the list. Critics argue that Tunisia’s designation as one of 17 “non-co-operative” territories in December sits uncomfortably with European support for the north African state’s efforts to fight terrorism, attract foreign investment and deal with the fallout from turmoil in neighbouring Libya.
