Tunisia to attract $67b in foreign investments

03 Jun 2010

(MENAFN) Tunisian Development Minister Nouir Jouini said that the government aims to lure $67.1 billion by 2014 as part of a drive to bolster growth to cut the double digit jobless rate, AP reported.

The north African country had drawn $45.6 million investment over the previous five years, according to the official data.

Tunisia hopes foreign investment will account for 26 percent of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) by 2014, up from 23.9 percent in 2009, the minister said.

The country aims at reducing unemployment rate by attracting more flows into its economy and bolstering added-value activities to absorb 80,000 new job seekers entering the market each year.
