The sixth edition of TUNISIA INVESTMENT FORUM 2017- took place on 09th and 10th November 2017 in Tunis entitled “New Tunisia New Economic Vision

During day one, TIF 2017 brought together a large number of officials, businessmen, financial institutions and experts in various investment-related areas. At the closing of day one, the event attracted over 1,500 participants from more than 45 countries covering 4 continents.

Nearly 95 journalists attended day one which was marked by an opening ceremony and 3 thematic panels.

There was a common consent among speakers and panelists on the upward trend Tunisia is following towards economic recovery and on the fact that the country is well positioned to play its role as a regional hub.

HE M. Youssef Chahed stressed that the 2% growth rate in 2017 reflects an upward trend, hence a 3% economic growth rate is expected for the year 2018 (forecast).

As a follow-up of the Tunisia 2020 projects, about 45% of the financial pledges for project financing have been achieved and the remaining is still underway.

The promising investment outlook in Tunisia has been confirmed by an OECD study which revealed that Tunisia is making progress by becoming more integrated in the global value chains with a tangible move upmarket over the past decade.

The programme on day two of TIF 2017 included a fourth panel on "Regional Development and Corporate Social Responsibility" as well as a sector-specific major panel: "Industry 4.0". In addition, two other workshops focused on ICT and agriculture were held simultaneously to raise awareness about existing potentiel.
About 50 business meetings were organised to promote partnership initiatives between investors in Tunisia.

Tunisia Investment Forum 09th-10th  November 2017


The Tunisian economy will certainly bounce back over the coming years. Tunisia's favourable business environment, along with high human capital development, will result in a rise of FDIs, which will help drive private investment and growth. We expect the continuation of market-friendly reforms to attract more FDIs, particularly as Tunisia seeks to restart growth and find gainful employment for the many young and highly educated Tunisians. The enacting of a new investment law in September 2016 and the reform of the fiscal regime will enhance the business environment and send positive signals to potential investors. We expect foreign investors to take advantage of these positive attributes and help drive growth over the long term. The manufacturing economy has moved from low-skill industries such as textiles towards higher-skill industries including auto parts manufacturing and aerospace industries, renewables, agribusiness and pharmaceutical & healthcare industries.
Long recognised as a key player in the region, Tunisia has a huge potential to become a regional hub for investors. It offers a number of strategic operational advantages such as proximity to European and African markets, low levels of bureaucracy and participation in a number of free trade agreements, combined with a tremendous entrepreneurial spirit.
TIF 2017, organised in partnership with local and international partners, brings together CEOs, MDs, experts and high-level policy-makers, representatives of international organizations to discuss the investment climate and business opportunities prevailing in Tunisia.
Participants will get an incredible chance to learn about recent developments and seize the myriad of business opportunities available in different sectors. The 2017 agenda will feature a combination of keynote addresses and panel discussions from international business leaders, experts and high-level policy makers, all keen to share their knowledge and experience.
