How TecEx Can Help You Import into Tunisia

Although it only accounts for 7.5% of Tunisia’s GDP, the ICT sector is considered a priority. This is primarily due to its potential as a vector for the development of other economic sectors and as a dynamic industry of innovation open to the international market and foreign investment. The country is home to three ICT-oriented technoparks as well as 18 cyberparks. These cyberparks are entirely dedicated to training and research. This all forms part of the government’s plan to turn Tunisia into an international benchmark in digital technology by developing a network of world-class innovative companies.

Thanks to its access to human capital, appropriate financial aid, and supporting institutions, it has seen significant success in its high-tech market. However, importing valuable Tech equipment into the country is a complex process. Like many others, there is a restriction on second-hand goods. Unlike most other Tunisia also has restrictions on portable technologies like laptops and cell phones which must be imported using specific terms.
