Business Council for International Understanding ready to invest in Tunisia.

TUNIS (TAP) - Caretaker President Moncef Marzouki invited, on Thursday in New York, US businessmen to invest in Tunisia which, he said, is a promising market for foreign investors.

"Attracting funds likely to generate employment is one of the main priorities in post-Revolution Tunisia," Marzouki said at a meeting with a delegation of the Business Council for International Understanding (BCIU), adding that " the January 14 Revolution was triggered off chiefly to fight against marginalisation and unemployment."

Several US businessmen expressed readiness to invest in Tunisia, notably in sectors benefiting from numerous state incentives, such as renewable energy and infrastructure projects.

They spoke in favour of easing administrative procedures and reducing bureaucratic constraints which, for them, prevent the flow of investments in Tunisia.

The Business Council for International Understanding is a not-for- profit organisation that encourages dialogue between business and political leaders in different countries; Its membership comprises more than 150 companies.
