The Republic of Tunisia is one of the economic powerhouses of Africa with 11 million inhabitants and a GDP of US$41.662 billion. It is the smallest state in the Maghreb with a surface area of 162,155 sq.kms. The country is bordered to the west by Algeria, to the southeast by Libya and to the north and east by the Mediterranean Sea (source: FMI – INS, 2017).
Its main revenues come from agriculture, industry and services. The country is also developing opportunities to attract foreign investment.
Because of their common history, France and Tunisia still have a very strong relationship. In fact, France remains Tunisia’s main customer and supplier. Exports from France to Tunisia amount to €3.4 billion while imports total €4 billion.
In order to meet the needs of its customers on the Tunisian market, Simon Associés has developed privileged relations with economic and legal partners locally.
