Tunisia is a country located in the south of the Mediterranean Sea, as French-speaking countries under the influence of Arabic and Islamic culture. Thanks to the location, Tunisia is a destination for outsourcing of European manufacturing industry.

JICA started our cooperation from 1975, by dispatching volunteers. Since then, we have been continuously cooperating mainly by technical cooperation, grant, Japanese ODA Loans, and dispatching volunteers in different sectors. Rades- La Goulette Bridge, Rades Electric Power Plant, Sfax- El Jem and Gabes - Medenine highways, and Sfax Sea Water Desalination Plant are among the major projects.

Current three pillars of cooperation are "Industrial Development and Economic Infrastructure Development", "Regional Development" and "Water Resources Development and Natural Disaster Prevention".

For sustainable development of Tunisia, we continue to seek an appropriate cooperation to meet demands for its economic and social prosperity by mobilizing every tool and resource that Japan can offer.
