Tunisia

As part of the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership (Euromed), Tunisia has an Association Agreement with the EU, which grants it:

  • duty-free access to the EU market for manufactured goods
  • preferential treatment for agricultural, processed agricultural and fisheries products.

Tunisia also has a bilateral trade dispute settlement mechanism with the EU.

Tunisia is covered by the European Neighbourhood Policy, specifically an Action Plan which aims at deepening trade relations.

Tunisia is also a signatory of the Agadir Agreement with Egypt, Jordan and Morocco, as a step towards creating a Euro-Mediterranean free-trade area. It also has free-trade agreements with Turkey and with the EFTA countries.

Tunisia is part of the Pan-Euro-Mediterranean system of cumulation of origin, which makes it simpler to import products manufactured in more than one country throughout the Mediterranean basin.

Tunisia is a member of the World Trade Organisation (since 1995).
