Our Partners In Dialogue – Tourism In Tunisia: Towards New Strength?


March 7, 2019

15:25 - 15:45

CityCube Berlin, Auditorium A3

The year 2018 seems to be the point of recovery for tourism in Tunisia. For the first time, the tourist arrivals scored similar numbers to ten years ago. Further growth is expected in 2019. Meanwhile, the tourism industry again accounts for eight per cent of the Tunisian national gross domestic product (GDP). 

German development cooperation and the German private sector have been very active in the country in recent years, also in collaboration – and will continue to do so in the future. German and Tunisian stakeholders want to work even closer together in the upcoming years aiming for a more diverse, resilient and sustainable tourism sector in in the country.

What is necessary to make Tunisian tourism a stable pillar of the national economy? What expectations do the Tunisian government and the tourism industry have of each other and of German development cooperation?
