Tunisia/ 6.2 Public cultural expenditure  

6.2.1 Aggregated indicators

The following tables highlight the public cultural expenditures according to the budget of the Ministry of Culture. The identification of total public spending in the cultural sector as originating from different public structures (including regional structures) are difficult to trace due to the lack of a unified classification for expenditures for culture in the budgets of other public structures. The adoption of Performance-Based-Budgeting (PBB)[1] in 2014 by the Ministry of Culture and which adopts the framework of a results-based-management and performance indicators,  would improve the follow-up process of public expenditure in cultural sector with more visibility and harmony with the objectives of cultural policy.
