Hédi Amara Nouira (5 April 1911 – 25 January 1993) was a Tunisian politician. He served as the Prime Minister of Tunisia between 1970 and 1980. Following the failure of a short-lived Socialist experiment in the 1960s, prime minister Hedi Nouira liberalised the economy during the 1970s. In 1970, the then Governor of the Central Bank, Hedi Nouira was appointed Prime Minister. The most decisive factor in Nouira's appointment seemed to be his commitment to private initiative as well as his financier’s background.
