March 2004
Middle East;Mar2004, Issue 343, p34
Over the last 15 years, Tunisia has collected an enviable tally of economic and social kudos. Tunisia has been ranked 33rd out of 95 countries on the latest Davos Forum's Business Competitiveness Index and Tunisia, alone among African and Arab countries, has open access to international capital markets as of March 2004. As Tunisia repeatedly achieved its development goals and as more and more families graduated to middle-class levels, so its reputation for political stability and economic progress began to increase in Africa, the Arab world and now worldwide. In his closing remarks, Tunisia's President Ben Ali said the first summit had made it possible to reach a common approach through the Tunis Declaration. INSET: VITAL EUROPEAN, ARAB AND AFRICAN DIALOGUE IN TUNIS.
