Tunisia - Industry Support Institutions Upgrading Project (English)

The objective of the Industry Support Institutions Upgrading Project is to put in place an efficient and market-responsive system of support agencies, providing assistance to the industrial sector, consisting mainly of small and medium enterprises, and in particular to firms seeking to become more internationally competitive. The project aims to enhance the effectiveness of the government of Tunisia support for viable private sector enterprises' efforts to upgrade their international competitiveness, which various donors, including the European Commission, are supporting. It will improve management of the sectoral technical centers (STCs) through the introduction of program and performance contracts, and encourage them to further clarify their mandate, and focus on marketable services. The project will support: 1) the institutional reform and strengthening of the four existing STCs; 2) the creation of additional STCs; and 3) the establishment of a national metrology system. To this end, the project will assist in financing such productive facilities and resources of the technical institutions supporting the industrial sector as will contribute to the economic and social development of Tunisia. Thus, the project will finance civil works, goods and equipment, technical assistance and training.
