Tunisia has a strategic location between Europe, Africa and the Middle East. It is an ideal location for further expansion into Africa and the Middle East. Since the fall of the previous regime, Tunisia is increasingly opening up to the rest of the world.
The government is investing heavily in the attractiveness of Tunisia for foreign investors and business partners. Besides the strong investment incentives, there is a vibrant, young and very modern workforce available in the sectors of apparel, automotive, ICT, tourism and energy. Tunisia offers excellent opportunities for off shoring production and ICT activities to a country with well educated employees, good investment conditions and a strong will to move forward.
After the revolution, Tunisia is expected to move back to a stable economic growth of approximately 3% to 4% per year. It is a country where conditions for growth have been laid already in the past with a well established infrastructure of ports, airports and highway network.
The following sectors are the most relevant to the Tunesian economy – 80% of the total export is bound to Tunisia’s main economic partner, the European Union:
- Textiles and apparel
- Food products
- Petroleum products
