Various US circles take interest in Tunisia -  17/03/2011 

Chief Executive Officer of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) Elizabeth Littelfield voiced admiration for the democratic transition Tunisia is living through, after the January 14 Revolution, and expressed the great interest that various American circles are taking in the country.

She met, on Thursday, with the Ministers of Planning and International Co-operation and of Industry and Technology.

During her meeting with Planning and International Co-operation Minister Abdelhamid Triki, she specified that OPIC devised a programme for the benefit of American enterprises interested in Tunisia, including notably a contribution to finance projects and guarantee the required assistance, in collaboration with the Tunisian concerned structures.

The American agency, Mrs. Littlefield pointed out, started preparing a special programme to introduce Tunisia as a North African investment destination, announcing the organisation of an American enterprises' mission by the end of the current month to promote opportunities offered by the country in the sectors of renewable energies, infrastructure and small- and medium-sized firms.

Meeting between OPIC CEO and Industry and Technology Minister Abdelaziz Rassaa was an occasion to discuss the opportunities offered by Tunisia in the industry and energy sectors, with a view to boosting American investment, notably in renewable energies.

The talk also turned on prospects for developing activities of those American enterprises established in Tunisia, given the climate of transparency and equity prevailing in the country, which is a factor of attractiveness for doing business.
