Aiming to boost investment in key sectors, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, in partnership with the Tunisian Ministry of Development, Investment and International Cooperation, and the General Commission for Public-Private Partnerships, are holding a high-level global forum on public-private partnerships (PPPs) in Tunis today.

Thirty-three major projects worth more than 13 billion Tunisian dinars will be presented at the forum, which will be led by Prime Minister Youssef Chahed alongside a number of ministers and key stakeholders. The government is also presenting its new, recently finalised PPP legislative framework at the forum, which covers vital sectors such as energy, water, transport, logistics, infrastructure and technology.

The global forum is part of the government’s commitment to adopting new mechanisms to advance investment, boost growth and open up opportunities for national and foreign private investment, easing the burden on public finances.
