In 1999, the MEB held its first economic mission to Tunis, accompanied during a trip by Prince Albert. Since then, three other missions have been held in Monaco and Tunisia, allowing Monegasque entrepreneurs to discover quality local partners, encouraging them to invest in Tunisia.

During the latest visit, a Business Forum with UTICA – the Tunisian Union of Industry, Commerce and Handicrafts – has led to the signing of a cooperation agreement with the MEB.

The delegation is made up of 35 people, representing 18 Monaco entities, operating in transport, plastics, ICT, insurance, trading, coffee machines and health.

The Association of Businesswomen of Monaco will also benefit from this trip to sign an agreement with the National Chamber of Businesswomen of Tunisia.

Tunisia, which is a symbol of democratic transition in the region, has always been able to count on the Principality. Today, the country is returning to growth – 2.5 percent expected in 2017 – led by tourism and agriculture, which have regained their dynamism supported by a policy of diversification of the economy.

Tunisia is a favoured destination conducive to the development of Monegasque enterprises.
