Foreign direct investment in Tunisia has recorded growth rates of over 20 per cent in the past years and Tunisia is praised for its good investment climate as part of the G20 Compact with Africa Initiative. In addition, export-oriented companies experience tax benefits and since 2011 the German commitment has tripled. With COVID-19 also affecting the Tunisian economy, however, the question arises how joint strategies can be developed to successfully continue on a path of cooperation and mutual win-win relationships.

This webinar will therefore give an overview over the current situation around COVID-19 in Tunisia and the response of the Tunisian government to the outbreak. In addition, it will highlight business opportunities in selected sectors in Tunisia, explain how COVID-19 will affect doing business in these areas and showcase examples of German companies that have successfully done business in Tunisia before and during COVID-19.
