Foreign direct investment in Tunisia has recorded growth rates of over 20 per cent in the past years and Tunisia is praised for its good investment climate as part of the G20 Compact with Africa Initiative. In addition, export-oriented companies experience tax benefits and since 2011 the German commitment has tripled. With COVID-19 also affecting the Tunisian economy, however, the question arises how joint strategies can be developed to successfully continue on a path of cooperation and mutual win-win relationships.

This webinar will therefore give an overview over the current situation around COVID-19 in Tunisia and the response of the Tunisian government to the outbreak. In addition, it will highlight business opportunities in selected sectors in Tunisia, explain how COVID-19 will affect doing business in these areas and showcase examples of German companies that have successfully done business in Tunisia before and during COVID-19.

Djibouti, on the Horn of Africa, is a major gateway connecting global trade routes to landlocked countries in East Africa including Ethiopia. The country’s International Free Trade Zone (DIFTZ) is already enhancing domestic growth and attracting a growing number of international companies, only one year on from its launch. There are already over 80 companies signed up to the zone, from the trade and logistics sectors. These companies come from around the world, including Ethiopia, Europe, the Middle East and China. With the Djibouti International Hotel and the Djibouti International Tower inaugurated last month, and the upcoming connection to Doraleh multipurpose port, yet more international investors and businesses are expected to join soon.

The Djibouti Damerjog Industrial Development (DDID) is also under development and will create complementary opportunities alongside DIFTZ. DDID will include the country’s second oil terminal, as well as a zone dedicated to heavy industry. The work is scheduled for completion next year.
