"New Tunisia, New Opportunities" is a just-launched programme designed to encourage foreign investment and kick-start Tunisia's economic recovery. "This plan is aimed at Tunisia's foreign partners, to reassure them and promote the image of Tunisia as a country recovering calmly and confidently; a country capable of keeping its economy rolling," said Mokhtar Chouari, information attaché at the Foreign Investment Promotion Agency (FIPA).
The promotion scheme runs from mid-April through mid-July 2011. The plan was created by FIPA, the Agency for the Promotion of Industry and Innovation, the Export Promotion Centre (CEPEX), and the Ministry of Industry and Technology. "The promotion plan is aimed at raising the awareness of collectors and investors from France, Italy, Germany, Belgium, Spain and Britain, on priority sectors such as mechanical and electrical industries, outsourcing, textile and Tunisian exports," Chouari added.
Marking the occasion, a workshop on "Democratic Transition: the Challenges and Prospects of Improving the Business Climate" will be held, along with two other workshops on "Tunisian Areas: Most Competitive Sites for Foreign Investment". The events will showcase success stories about foreign enterprises, as well as the outsourcing sector as a tool to create jobs, along with testimonies from workers in the sector.FIPA stressed that Tunisia will attract greater investments in the medium term, possibly including global companies such as Fidelity, Atos, Origin and Logic. "The revolution is an appropriate opportunity to open up to new and competitive enterprises at the international level," Chouari said.
