Welcome to our Business Page!
One of my key goals as Ambassador is to increase trade and business activities between Tunisia and the United States. As a part of President Obama’s National Export Initiative (NEI) that seeks to double U.S. exports by 2015, this Embassy is working energetically to promote business-to-business relations and advocate for U.S. companies in order to actively expand trade and investment opportunities for U.S. companies in Tunisia.
As Ambassador, I have been fortunate to work with many U.S. companies doing or seeking to do business in Tunisia, and I have met with many Tunisian companies trying to improve their business prospects in the United States. I have actively encouraged government, business and civil society leaders in Tunisia to promote a secure, investment-friendly environment to allow us to expand and strengthen the economic ties between our two great countries. We use every opportunity, including meetings at the Embassy, trade shows, and networking and promotional events, to showcase products, discuss policies, or simply bring the right people together. There are numerous success stories to report and I hope to see many more.
The U.S. Embassy is dedicated to promoting and protecting U.S. commercial interests in Tunisia, and stands ready to offer a variety of services to both American and Tunisian companies. I hope you find the information on this site useful, and please do call upon us to assist you in whatever way we can.

Tunisia and the United States signed a Trade Investment Framework Agreement (TIFA) in 2002, and in October 2011, talks were relaunched to deepen engagement via this agreement.
