With EBRD support, the investor platform will be transformed into a digital one-stop shop. It will provide fully automated digital services aimed at improving the investor experience, attracting foreign direct investment and creating jobs. Services will track the entire investor journey, from declaration of investment to the granting of authorisation and aftercare.
The EBRD has collaborated with the TIA and Tunisia’s Ministry of Economy to launch an interactive digital guide for investors to facilitate access to information, opportunities and incentives for business investors.
To support improvements in Tunisia’s business climate, the Bank has also provided technical assistance to the Strategic National Investment Council, hosted by the TIA, to boost public-private dialogue by proposing policies and reforms to promote the development of the private sector. Several of the recommendations that sprung from this council have been approved by the Tunisian Government, including the reform of the authorisations regime to make it more investor friendly and a convergence roadmap aimed at unifying the investment ecosystem.
