Topic - Tunisia'S Government
After a disastrous year in which revolution, social upheaval and strikes scared away tourists and crippled industrial production, Tunisia's economy is slowly climbing out of a deep recession that saw it shrink by 2 percent in 2011.
Tunisia's government issued an international arrest warrant for ousted President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali on Wednesday, accusing him of taking money out of the North African nation illegally.
Arab leaders are pledging $2 billion to revamp the faltering economies across the region amid fears of protests over high unemployment, rising prices and rampant corruption, such as those that just brought down Tunisia's government.
Violent anti-government protests drove Tunisian President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali from power Friday after 23 years of iron-fisted rule, as anger over soaring unemployment and corruption spilled into the streets.
