The financial liberalization policy was undertaken in several countries  like in Tunisia in order to have modern and dynamic financial system.  However, the consequences of this program are completely divergent from it’s waitings. On the basis of data relating to 9 Tunisian banks over the period 1980-2009, and by adopting the panal data analysis, the aim of this paper is to check the effect of financial liberalization on the Tunisian banking profitability. The results of our study show a negative and significative relation between financial liberalization and banking profitability.
