I didn't know Tunisia had that much cash ever, let alone to pay for a project.

^ I'm surprised at the size of this thing too, cause to my knowledge and unlike Algeria, Tunisia has no significant natural gas or oil resources. Well, they may have a bit of oil, but no striking amount of it. Their tourism industry has been fairly developed, however, kinda like that of Morocco. Some of the money might just come from foreign interests. It sounds aggressive enough and pretty exciting to me, as it will widely serve southern Europe's interests as well, specially France's since we've got some historic relations to them, and a significant Tunisian community over here.

The main developer is a Tunisian businessman who made a fortune in Saudi Arabia. His name is Riadh Khalifa Toukabri. He's definitely close to some Saudi establishment, but I think it's important to have a Tunisian to mainly manage this thing. Over 50 multinationals involved so far, from some 30 countries. So this whole thing is to be giant like an entire brand new worldclass city. Some sort of Mediterranean Dubai, if you will.

More in French.

It'd make more sense to incorporate this into already important centers of industry and commerce such as Tunis, Sfax or Sousse? Such segregated cities with specific economic zones and not much else typically are not that pleasant of places

It's located in the Sousse governorate, 45km (~30 miles) north of Sousse and some 100km (~60 miles) south of Tunis, connected to both cities by the railway between them and nearby the Enfidha international airport.

I went through some Tunisian threads just yesterday. Some are quite skeptical and don't think it's feasible. Others are pointing out that engineering studies are well ongoing yet, thus that some investors are already spending money in the project.

There would've been a 1st attempt of a similar scale elsewhere in the country in a recent past that failed. They're trying again, apparently determined.

But obviously, an economic city that seeks to bring everyone on board...and boost country's research, academics and business, would be worthwhile - an additional is not bad!

They are trying I agree - more on the whole plan is revealed in the Tunisia Economic City website - http://www.tunisiaec.com/ as above

Confused

According to reports, it is expected that this Tunisian economic city will be built on a public-private partnership model and people from around 30 countries have shown interest. This would create jobs for 100,000 employees and attract foreign investors. It is also hoped that this new city will help to reduce unemployment in Tunisia and stimulate the economy. The location for the city has not yet been announced, but it is expected to be built near Tunis. This would be a major project and it will be interesting to see how it progresses.

Anyway, that's all I know. Also, if ever you need the best pool cleaning services in Chandler, choose www.poolcleanerchandleraz.com for efficiency and affordable rates.

I wonder if this is already realized or still under proposal but this is a great ambition that involves attracting around 1 million jobs and 20 billion dollars into the Southern region by 2040. That's for sure.

I keep thinking about whether this is as of now understood or still under proposition yet this is an extraordinary aspiration that includes drawing in around 1 million positions and 20 billion bucks into the Southern area by 2040. That is without a doubt. tree surgeon sunderland

Impressive Structure

This is very informative and I like how they manage this project well without compromising its quality. Check this out for information about the ongoing project we are currently working on.
