Tunisia has been hailed as the model for other African and Middle Eastern countries to follow in their quest for modernization and growth. The country's road to success has been long and arduous. In more recent times, Tunisia's diplomatic and business influence in the rest of Africa has grown well out of proportion to its size. Tunisia was the first country outside Europe to sign a partnership agreement with the European Union (EU) which paves the way for increasing free trade between the two. Tunisia is already the leading supplier of garments to the European Union and it is now positioning itself to challenge Asian textile and garment manufacturers by reducing lead times to days instead of weeks.
