Under the slogan "Tunisia, reforms and competitive values", the Foreign Invest Promotion Agency (FIPA) is organising the 20th edition of the Tunisia Investment Forum (TIF) on 23 and 24 June 2022 under the patronage of the Tunisian Ministry of Economy and Planning and in collaboration with the World Bank and the Corporate Finance Institute (CFI).
The aim of this Forum is to position Tunisia as one of the major investment options for all countries, especially due to its characteristics and its geostrategic location as a junction point between Africa and Europe.
The Tunis Investment Forum (TIF) is the leading economic event in Tunisia dedicated to international investment and innovation that aims to consolidate itself as a multi-sector and business space for all economic operators seeking a competitive location. This is the task that has been carried out in the North African country for 50 years since it was launched in 1972 and turned Tunisia into a key economic platform in the Mediterranean area.
Therefore, in this edition, which also celebrates its 50th anniversary, it will take place over two days with an opening ceremony on Thursday 23 June and will culminate the following day with the awards ceremony and thematic sessions on "the measures and mechanisms recently adapted to improve the business environment", according to the Forum's programme. Through the participation of operators and entrepreneurs, it will allow participants to learn about public-private sector consultations and take the opportunity to establish Tunisian-foreign partnerships through networking sessions.
The Forum is expected to be attended by the Tunisian Minister of Economy and Planning, Samir Saïed, on investment recovery, as well as the Minister of Industry, Energy and Mines, Neila Gongi, on competitiveness, innovation and success stories in the international market.
In this sense, the Forum is also the showcase for a new mechanism, the Project Development Facility, for the promotion of public-private partnership investment projects, supported by the G20 Compact with Africa (CwA) and the World Bank.
Tunisia's internationalisation drive has been a task that the African country has more than fulfilled, especially in its relations with Spain. The FIPA agency itself participated in a conference held in Madrid on 2 June on the great option that the Tunisian country represents for business activity in Spain. In addition, the Tunisian delegation defended its role as a meeting platform between Africa and Europe at the IMEX Fair in Madrid last April.
