The objective of this paper is to explore the feasibility and the efficiency of a strategy of inflation targeting in Tunisia. We check whether the necessary conditions for a successful implementation of inflation targeting are fulfilled or not and we outline the pre-requisites for adopting this strategy in Tunisia. By developing a structural VAR model, we try to evaluate the transmission channels of monetary policy and to identify the conditions for successful adoption of the regime of inflation targeting.
