“Dear investors, dear partners Tunisia has just made its revolution!
A revolution carried out by its educated and strongly graduate youth, which remain its principal richness, its principal asset.
I. Industrial economic situation (January 2011)
The country counts 3100 foreign companies, these companies are vital for Tunisia, they account for 1/5 of the Tunisian economy. The TUNIS Chamber of Commerce and Industry reassures the economic operators and particularly take to maintain the degree of acquired confidence; for this reason it announces a normal resumption of the activities of the great majority of these companies, and a return to the accustomed work, which is positive in itself.
According to the first data available by The Ministry of Industry and Technology, the industrial sector have withstood during January 2011.
The various indicators show that the recorded falls remain limited. And it is necessary to pay tribute to the devotion of the industrialists and the workers who could, in the majority of cases, preserve the production equipment. Nevertheless, these falls do not represent anything compared to the martyr’s revolution who sacrificed their lives for freedom.
II. Intentions of investment:
Declared intentions of investment in the industrial sector during January 2011 knew a rise of 10% in spite of the phase of transition which the political scene knows. (186 MD opposed to 169MD in 2010).
January thus recorded, according to first data’s collected by The Ministry of Industry and Technology, the declaration of 266 projects likely to create more than 5000 additional jobs in industry.
It is an extremely significant result which testify to the confidence of the Tunisian and foreign investors in the growth potential of the Tunisian economy.
What is sure, it is that the future of Tunisia will be better. Its political system depreciated a long time can now evolve to more freedoms, a better governorship; more transparency is towards the bases of an environment of businesses healthier, favourable to the creative private initiative, whether it is local or foreign.
Of the opinion of the experts, the result of this situation can only reinforce the competitiveness and the attractiveness of the Tunisian site. There is from now on a new deal in Tunisia of today which have to be powerful.
It is necessary that Tunisia can count on its Partners and receive from them a solid support: Partners whose contribution can be more important…” the prevailing moment is now in favour for the mutual aid” and this is why the CCITUNIS maintained the date of Tunis-Medindustrie Exhibition .
