ABSTRACT
Tunisia, with a land area of roughly 163,000 sq km is small compared to its Maghrebi neighbors such as Algeria and Libya. Yet Tunisia leaves them both and the rest of Africa standing when it comes to economic performance. Relying on a well-educated, highly motivated, technologically literate workforce, Tunisia has grown into a buzzing, innovative industrial center situated bang in the middle of one of the world's most affluent markets. From the European rim of the Mediterranean, the trade routes form a vast, interconnected network extending from Spain, France, Italy, Greece, Turkey through Germany, Switzerland, Great Britain, the Netherlands, the Nordic countries and into the former Soviet empire, with an annual growth level of around 5 percent for the past decade, Tunisia has practically lost its' developing country' status.
