Manama, Bahrain, Tuesday 9th June, 2009: His Excellency Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, President of Tunisia laid the foundation stone for North Africa’s first offshore financial center at a ceremony held today. Situated in Tunis Bay, Tunis Financial Harbour (TFH) is the brainchild of leading Middle Eastern Islamic investment bank Gulf Finance House (GFH) and will play host to some of the world’s leading names in finance, advisory and support services at a strategic crossroads between the European, North African and Middle Eastern markets.

During the ceremony, the finalized project master plan was unveiled, heralding the start of a contractor tendering process and the commencement of infrastructure work planned for the end of 2009. TFH is the second in a series of offshore financial centres originated by GFH and was conceived in close partnership with the state of Tunisia, who in recent months took significant steps and initiatives to pave the way for the initiative, including attractive tax, regulatory and foreign exchange incentives to prospective commercial residents from the world’s financial community. Furthermore, laws regulating offshore banks and financial institutions in relation to the Tunis Financial Harbour were revised after being passed on to the Cabinet under the supervision of the President on Wednesday 10th June.

Esam Janahi, Chairman of GFH added, “This morning’s ceremony which took place under the patronage of His Excellency President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, represents a significant milestone in the realization of a first for North Africa’s financial infrastructure. Tunisia is undoubtedly one of the region’s most competitive and exciting economies enjoying sustained stability and a strong record of GDP growth, a prosperous industrial sector, a diversified services sector, modern infrastructure and skilled human capital. Given its strategic geographic location, TFH offers tremendous opportunity for the international financial community. The long-term benefits to the Tunisian and regional economies will be numerous and far-reaching and we are delighted to partner with the Tunisian Government on this pioneering initiative.”

TFH will comprise four distinct business clusters including investment banking and advisory centre, a corporate centre, a Takaful/ insurance hub and the regions first international financial exchange. Alongside these functions, an international business school will be built to equip tomorrow’s graduates with the skills demanded by leading players from the international finance and support services community. Tunis Financial Harbour is expected to generate over 16,000 jobs, most of which will be for highly skilled workers.

Located just north of Gammarth, TFH will populate an area of around 520 hectares approximately ten minutes away from the most affluent areas in Tunis including La Marsa and Carthage. To complement the commercial aspects of the initiative, a variety of residential and leisure facilities including the marina, a residential complex with luxurious villas and an 18 hole championship golf course are included in the master plan.

Tunisia ambitions to double golf courses by 2020

TUNISIAONLINENEWS- Tunisia “a promising niche for an affluent segment of visitors who are also likely to spend more” has recently adopted a strategy aiming at doubling the number of golf courses by 2020.
The Tunisian strategy will diversify the landscape and environment of rangeland “coasts” as those of Sousse and Hammamet, the golf course of Djerba and the “Golf Club Tozeur” which was created in 2007.

The planned achievements for the next decade include the creation of some routes located in the northern shore of the Tunis lake, Raoued (Tunis), Hergla (Sousse), Zarzis and Djerba, which soon will house new integrated courses.
It is worth noting that with 10 golf courses draining 65 thousand tourists per year,Tunisia was ranked in 2008 as the world’s 4th golf destination by the leading French golf tour operators’ magazine “Greens du Monde”.
