Hopefully we will find our own Dubai style lol

All teh mega projects are under construction at this point . others are approuved but technical research and environmental impacts studies are still ongoing ..

for the Mediteranean gate the full completion will be in 2020... but its a brand new city of 500 000 inhabitants..

the financial harbour will be finished in 2010 same for bled el ward.

Al Qussor is planned to be on sale in 2012 I think and the new iarport in 2009 next year ...

Same for la Cite de la culture it is almost complete now ...

Tunisia is booming since 1990 with an average annual growth of 5,6 % since then !!

With all these projects we hope a 6,5% annual growth .

Great projects bt I have some doubts maybe you can explain me; I was often in Tunis last 2 years for business; it's still a little economy, and his good growth (5% per year) doesn't justify such a business area I think.
still the Berge Du Lac district isn't finished yet and presents a lot of unsolden lodgings and buildings.
To build a business district u need an historical background (like Hong Kong or Singapore for example) or lot of money and economic freedom to attract investors (like Dubai and his oil dollars) , Tunisia has nothing of this.
And there is the dependency "de-facto" of France, wich doesn't help the global ecomomic opening.
That's my personal opinion, beside this I like Tunisia very much and I wish the best to this country.

yes ideed the avearge annual growth for the last 20 is around 5.6 % . In order to boost this annula growtth we need to upgrade all the sectors of our economy and the infrastructures .

All these investments are coming from the Emirates and some of them from Italy . The toursim is one of the m,ain industrie in tunisia however the revenues from mass tourism are not going up teherfoore tunisia is chaging her startegy and is trying with all thesse projects to attarct high end toursits and residents .

the laws have been change to reflect this new reality For instance as f now strangers can buy a property in tunisia wich was not the case 6 months ago ...

The berges Du lac is mainly for the locals and it s a kind of a test for Tunisia.

now all these projects will give a better value to the product tunisia in teh toursim industry .

on the other hand you have also to remember that we are diversifying our eceonomy and the objective is to be within the next 10-15 years a regional financial hub like Singapore or Hong kong as you mentionned ....

There is a demand for this and none of the the other countries Algeria or Morrocco doe shave the potential the know how and the human ressources of tunisia in this matter .

the recent visit of Sarkozy in Tunisia and all teh contracts signed between france & tunisia also reflects this new interest for Tunisia and the fear of the france to loose her influence in Tunisia ..

the dependancy that you are talking about is due really the major investors is not france but the emirates at this point , the main pourvoyuer of job is still the French busines but that is also changing with teh arrival of italian german and british firms in tunisia ..

basically the whole eceonomy is re-adjusting to this new relaity and to these new opportunity and the tunisian econmy is facing her biggest challenge ... but i am confident , tunisia does have all the human ressorces , the government willing and the potential to be the next Singapore of the Maghreb ..

Found on the website :

We wanted to reflect some Islamic architectural features whilst staying true to the idea of a modernist style by offering several styles which will appeal to a wider taste. The important thing was not to loose the flavour of the culture in the overall complex design.




















AN ECO-TOWER IS IN THE TABLE AND WILL BE THE FIRST ECO TOWER IN AFRICA !!!

a zero carbon footprint was achieved using every passive cooling and power generating tool available to create the perfect environmentally green building. Scheduled for completion in 2009
