Exploring Tunisia’s development potential


Research findings from the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) and the World Trade Organization Chairs at North-West University in South Africa and the University of Tunis will be discussed at this seminar.

The ISS’ long-term forecast for Tunisia to 2040 presents three scenarios that highlight the prospects and trade-offs needed to achieve a stable and prosperous country. The second study identifies export opportunities for Tunisia in Africa and the European Union. The findings can help policymakers in Tunisia formulate appropriate trade policies.

This seminar is co-hosted by the ISS and the Embassy of the Republic of Tunisia in South Africa in collaboration with North-West University in South Africa and the University of Tunis.

Simultaneous French interpretation will be provided for this event.
