AFRICA – A Legal Guide for Business Investment and Expansion: Tunisia

1. What role does the government of Tunisia play in approving and regulating foreign direct investment?

The Tunisian government places a priority on attracting foreign direct investment. The Tunisian government encourages export-oriented foreign direct investment in key industrial sectors such as electronics, aerospace, aeronautics, automotive parts and textile/apparel manufacturing. To minimize any possible negative impact on domestic competitors and employment, the Tunisian government screens foreign investment that targets the domestic market.

In the spring of 2015, the government of Tunisia began consultations with various regional and national stakeholders to establish an inclusive and sustainable economic and social development model: the 2016-2020 Development Plan is the outcome of this process.
