The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) has worked in Tunisia since 1975.
GIZ is active in Tunisia on behalf of the German Government and the European Union (EU). It works with local partners on more than 45 projects and supports the country in its economic policy and democratic development. Priority areas:
- Sustainable economic development and employment promotion
- Regional development, local governance and democracy
- Protection of natural resources
- Energy and climate
In order to improve the region’s economic performance and attract greater investment to the country, support is lent to the state, established companies and start-ups – for instance, in the digital economy. This creates earning and employment opportunities.
