The EIB has worked with Tunisia since 1979. We have invested in key infrastructure, modernised schools and supported the private sector to create jobs and stimulate growth.
In 2017, thanks to a EUR 43m loan, One Tech, a family business specialising in electronics, was able to upgrade its manufacturing capacity and create 720 new jobs.
In cooperation with ARRU (Tunisia’s Urban Rehabilitation and Renewal Agency) and other European partners, the EIB has also financed the rehabilitation and integration of working-class districts, which has so far benefited 3 million residents in 1000 districts across the country. The plan involves the construction of roads and sidewalks, houses, collective facilities, and the assignment of plots near the rehabilitated neighbourhoods.
