This article focuses on the book "The Foundations of Tunisian Development: 1962-1986," by Chedly Ayari. Ayari has written extensively on international economic affairs and has gained a reputation as an outstanding and brilliant speaker on development and political issues. In this book, the first of a series, Ayari explains that Tunisia's economic success story since independence is due to the development strategy adopted by the Government, the party and the country's institutions. The right choices were made to "decolonise" the economy, to eradicate poverty and illiteracy, to improve health, to build strong modern institutions and to adopt ambitious development plans.
