Throughout its 3,000 years history, Tunisia has been home to countless civilizations that left behind a country rich of history and culture. With its southern Saharan breathtaking landscapes, its beautiful Mediterranean beaches and its welcoming people, Tunisia hosts an average of 7 millions Tourists per year from all over the World!
Located in North Africa, with the Mediterranean Sea along its coast, Tunisia enjoys a very strategic and easily accessible location from Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Multiple direct flights connect it to most of the countries in the region.
Positive Impacts of the Jasmine Revolution
In the past few months, Tunisia witnessed a historical revolution that resulted in the ouster of a dictatorship regime. On January 14, 20011, a new, free, democratic and optimistic Tunisia was born where transparency, rule of law and fair dispute resolution is becoming the norm rather then the exception.
Tunisia has declared war against big and small corruption. Banks, for the first time in their history, have started disclosing their bad assets, and the government is sharing statistical and economic information via portals that it never shared before. Transparency, and proper governance will take some time to be embedded in the system, but irreversible decisions are being made now for it to happen, and civil society, NGOs and associations like ours are actively monitoring and scrutinizing this process.
