Promotion of Public Private Partnerships in Industrial Zones in Tunisia

Africa
Jun. 2012-Oct.2012

In Tunisia, GIZ is promoting an improved enabling environment for industrial development through a strengthening of industrial zones. Currently, Tunisia holds 121 industrial zones that are drivers for economic growth fostering regional and local development in the country. However, more than 2/3 of Tunisian industrial zones lack adequate maintenance systems and infrastructure. In this context, GIZ aims at assisting the stakeholders of industrial zones to improve the zone’s management. One possibility to promote a better service environment in the industrial zones is the delivery of services through the private sector. GIZ has identified a number of areas, where business opportunities that are currently not being tapped exist. To be able to systematically support industrial zones and the private sector in the development of those services, GIZ has asked CAD to support them in the setup of these Public-Private Partnerships.
