    Tunisia Industrial strategy 2016
    Information meeting with European ambassadors in Tunis

    TUNIS, May 28, 2009 (TAP) - A meeting was held, on Thursday in Tunis, with European ambassadors accredited in Tunis, with attendance notably of Ambassador, Head of the European Union (EU) Delegation in Tunis Adrianus Koetsenruijter.

    Industry, Energy, and Small- and Medium-Sized Firms Minister Afif Chelbi pointed out the importance lent by Tunisia to reinforcing industrial co-operation with Europe, in a framework of a win-win partnership, allowing Tunisian and European companies to cope with the competitive pressure of other regional groupings.

    Mr. Chelbi also presented the broad outlines of the 2016 industrial strategy and the international communication campaign on Tunisian industry.

    He said, in this respect, that this campaign aims to better inform industrialists and investors in Europe of new opportunities offered by the industrial sector in Tunisia.

    The minister voiced satisfaction, on the occasion, at the contribution of EU and the various bilateral economic co-operation programmes set up in Tunisia, for their support to this campaign designed to promote Tunisian industry and carried out by investment and exports promotion institutions (CEPEX, FIPA, API) as well as professionals (UTICA).

    Mr. Adrianus Koetsenruijter underlined, in turn, that the campaign « Think-Tunisia » reflects the will to further guarantee a better economic integration between Europe and Tunisia, despite the economic crisis.

    While reminding of the EU support to the country's industry modernisation and financing efforts, he said that the European Union is seeking to mobilise adequate means to further back up this effort in order to boost the private sector.

    There's no question Tunisia has an aggressive economic expansion plan in place, but even so it's so far behind at this point in industrial output one couldn't call it one of the most important in the Mediterranean, even by 2016...perhaps in Africa though?

    Because in 2009 Tunisia had an estimated GDP of $39.57 billion, whereas a few other Mediterranean countries:

    Algeria $134.8 billion
    Morocco $90.78 billion
    Egypt $188 billion
    Libya $60.61 billion
    Turkey $608 billion
    Spain $1.466 trillion
    Greece $338.3 billion

    So, as you can see, even to catch up to some of the African Mediterranean countries, Tunisia would have to triple it's GDP, and that's assuming those countries don't advance in that time as well - not to mention the European Mediterranean countries.

    I said nothing about size being a factor.

    Do you have any other sources you could point to that indicate this? Your only link is just a broad general statement that Tunisia is seeking to improve, but it doesn't present evidence that there will be a massive increase in Tunisia's economy.
