With their comprehensive experience in the Tunisian market, the Tunisia Investment Authority (TIA), the GIZ, and the EMA share numerous goals. First and foremost stands the facilitation of market access for foreign investors, which is promoted by all three organizations. In partnership with FIPA, AHK (Tunisia), and the Tunisian cluster Elentica, an online roundtable presenting the market trends and prevailing opportunities of the electronics industry in Tunisia will be organized on November 18, 2020 at 10 A.M.
The electronics industry is considered to be one of the priority sectors for the Tunisian economy and counts about 440 companies covering the whole value-chain with a presence of 234 international players providing a wide range of products and application areas: electronic components, wires, and cables for the automotive industry, lamps and lighting fixtures, electrical equipment for engines and vehicles, distribution and control equipment, home appliances, etc. More than 65% of the production is destined to international markets, mostly to European countries. A skilled workforce of over 120,000 employees is the main asset that marks and boosts the electronics sector.
The online roundtable will shed light on Tunisia’s electronics industry, its market trends, and prevailing opportunities. What is the future German-Tunisian strategy in this sector? And what is the current status quo? The online roundtable will also highlight investment opportunities in the Tunisian Electronics sector.
