Tunisia: land of opportunities in the Mediterranean
MEDITERRANEAN CLIMATE BONUS
Tunisia’s great advantage is its proximity to Europe and the short trade routes that involves. In addition, this North African country has undertaken a great deal to get itself fit for the European market. The number of processing facilities that meet European quality standards is constantly growing, as is the share of organic farming. Thanks to its favourable climatic conditions, Tunisia is an attractive procurement market for natural ingredients.
In the tourism sector, Tunisia convinces with more than just its gorgeous Mediterranean beaches. Tour operators specialising in alternative cultural tourism should definitely include Tunisia in their programme: Berber villages in the Sahara, medinas with their oriental flair, the holy city of Kairouan or the archaeological heritage of Carthage – these are just a few of Tunisia’s many touristic highlights.
