About Tunisia

Thanks to its geo-strategic position, located in the heart of the Mediterranean, Tunisia is a true crossroads of civilisations and a hub for investment, manufacturing and marketing.

By its geographical position in the tip of Africa on the Mediterranean, the vigor of its economy and its preferential agreements with many partner countries around the world, Tunisia offers access to many markets for foreign investors seeking to expand the progress of their activities.

The Tunisian economy is ranked among the most competitive in the world, and in the first-wide African and Arab. This is the result of a successful economic diversification and a huge openness to the outside.

With a modern infrastructure, Tunisia offers highly concessional conditions for implementation to foreign investors in order to guarantee the profitability and the continuity of their projects.
