Why outsourcing in Tunisia?
highly skilled IT-professionals
Tunisia is becoming a popular outsourcing location as the country offers a great number of highly skilled IT-professionals and IT-service providers. Outsourcing to Tunisia gives companies greater flexibility in their IT-capacities.
Since Tunisia launched the Startup Act in 2018, entrepreneurship has been on the rise. The Startup Act simplifies the business start-up process, and in doing so, has significantly stimulated the market. This small country is already home to more than 800 registered innovative startups and that number is constantly growing.
big talent pool & competitive wages
A growing skilled workforce with a problem-solving mindset: Annually more than 6,000 students graduate in IT & Engineering. Wages are competitive and will cost German partners on average, a third of the wages in Germany.
same time zone
Co-creating IT-projects with teams in Tunisia is very easy as Tunisia is located within the CET time zone with a 1 hour time difference to Germany.
The very short travel time makes Tunisia a very strategic outsourcing location. It only takes 2-3 hours to fly from Frankfurt to Tunis!
great language skills
Besides Arabic, French is the second national language which is spoken by over 60 % of the population in Tunisia. As well, most university students speak good English and even German.
sustainable business growth
The ICT sector in Tunisia is thriving with over 11 % of GDP being generated by the digital economy. Setting up business activities in Tunisia is also a good entrance to the MENA Region and the Sub-Saharan markets.
