The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is developing the agricultural sector in Tunisia by providing a €4 million loan to Sanlucar Flor’alia, the first large-scale raspberry plantation ever established in the country. The product will mainly be exported to Europe and the Middle East.

The EBRD-funded project, located in northern Tunisia in the Governorate of Bizerte, will introduce new varieties and will involve the innovative use of modern agricultural methods, allowing the farm to minimise the consumption of water, fertilisers and pesticides. Furthermore, the project will provide new and stable jobs for farm workers and agricultural engineers.

Marie-Alexandra Veilleux-Laborie, EBRD Head of Office in Tunisia, said: “Today’s signing with Flor’alia is an important step to develop the agribusiness sector in Tunisia. Building on the country’s potential, its favourable weather for good harvests and its geographic proximity to Europe, agribusiness can contribute substantially to the economic growth and creation of job opportunities.”

Stephan Roetzer, owner and CEO of Sanlucar Group, said: “In order to cultivate the most delicious fruits and vegetables in the future as well, we are constantly looking for the best farming regions around the world. The Finca Flor’alia in Tunisia is a plantation with successful future prospects where we will continue to invest in the development of a modern and sustainable agriculture”.

Sanlucar Flor’alia is owned and managed by Sanlucar Group, a fruit and vegetable specialist based in Valencia, Spain, and with a strong distribution and logistics network particularly in Austria and Germany. Sanlucar sources its high-quality products from partner farms worldwide, as well as from its own production sites in Europe, Tunisia, South Africa and Ecuador.

The EBRD has been investing in Tunisia since September 2012, providing financing so far of close to €250 million in 17 projects. The Bank provided technical assistance support to more than 130 small and medium-sized Tunisian enterprises.

The Bank’s investment comes under the Local Enterprise Facility, a €400 million facility for investments in enterprises in AlbaniaBosnia and HerzegovinaBulgariaCroatiaFYR MacedoniaKosovoMontenegro,RomaniaSerbia and Turkey, as well as countries in the southern and eastern Mediterranean region (Egypt,JordanMorocco and Tunisia). It provides a wide range of flexible financial products, including equity, quasi-equity and debt financing to address the needs of companies and the real economy.

The SanLucar brand stands for fruit and vegetables from personally controlled cultivation with the very best taste. With around 90 delicious fruit and vegetables from more than 35 countries, SanLucar is the brand with the broadest range on the market.

Vocational Education and Training in Tunisia

Click to Access: 

Also available in: French

This chapter examines the vocational education and training system in Tunisia, assessing strengths and challenges. Currently the system fails to provide youth with a sufficiently smooth transition into the labour market, and inadequately meets the needs of employers. The two main challenges are: i) the lack of attractiveness of vocational education and training in Tunisia, including the negative effects of the low status colleges techniques, and the underdevelopment of high quality options at the upper secondary level; and ii) the mix of provision (as between fields of study) is driven mainly by the capacity of the system, and it may not reflect the needs of the economy. This chapter recommends the implementation of a set of mutually reinforcing policy reforms, including a strategic expansion of VET at the upper secondary level and stronger mechanisms to engage employers. Finally, the chapter also looks at the provision of entrepreneurship training within the VET system, and identifies scope for improving both quality and accessibility of provision.

Mohsen Bentouati is Sub-Director of Employment Programs at the Ministry of Vocational Training and Employment in Tunisi.

In Tunisia, around 40 percent of youth are unemployed, many of them with only a secondary education or less. To help them find jobs, the government is undertaking a comprehensive reform of its active labor market programs (such as training, employment services, wage subsidies, and support for self-employment and entrepreneurship). With the reform, programs are being integrated and private service providers are being allowed to participate—with pay based on results (training provided, internships delivered, and job contracts signed).
