Why Tunisia?

Strategic location

Tunisia is the crossroads between Europe, Africa. and the Middle East. The very short travel time makes the country a very strategic location: Tunis is less than a 3-hour flight time from Europe’s main capitals.

Good infrastructure

When it comes to ICT infrastructure, Tunisia is leading in the MENA region. Its digital infrastructure includes a strong 4G network and high-capacity fibre optic cables linking the country to Europe.

Excellent education

The education system is focused on linguistic and technical skills. Each year, about 10,000 ICT students graduate, many of whom have international experience, expanding the pool of specialised workers.

Business environment

Today, there are over 1,800 companies operating in the ICT sector, employing over 100,000 skilled workers. Additionally, since Tunisia launched the Startup Act in 2018, entrepreneurship has been on the rise. 

High quality

Tunisia offers innovative solutions, quality software development and consultancy in Cloud Computing, Security Engineering, Computer Networking, Databases, Mobile Development, and much more.

Legal framework

Tunisia has enacted a favourable regulatory framework for international companies and investors. It is aligned to the EU’s GRDP and offers strong political support for outsourcing and nearshoring collaboration.

Start-up ecosystem

A dynamic promising start-up ecosystem helps young companies, investors, and start-up support organisations to develop a vibrant economy and branch out into the MENA and Sub-Saharan region.

Data security

Tunisia excels in data security, offering GDPR-compliant IT support through ISO-certified companies. Its laws align with European standards, ensuring reliable, high-quality services for European businesses.


While innovation and digitalisation are on the rise, rates are low, which makes Tunisian companies attractive partners. For example, the competitive wages are on average a third of the wages in Germany.

Cultural compatibility

Tunisia and its ecosystem are diverse and multilingual. French is the second national language after Arabic and spoken by over 60% of the population. Most university students also speak good English and even German.
