Intercultural Training Tunisia

culturewaves interkulturelles training tunesien

Successful interaction and collaboration with Tunisian business partners through our Intercultural Training Tunisia.

CultureWaves is looking forward to advising you!

Extend your knowledge about the Tunisian culture and develop intercultural awareness for the collaboration with Tunisians.

The Tunisian Republic in Northern Africa has been influenced by the rulership of the Ottomans and the French, as well as by Islamisation. It has now become an independent Arabic emerging market. The geographical proximity and the former French rule are mainly contributing to the fact that the Arabic-Islamic country is, despite its traditions, still under foreign influence.

The Tunisian economy, which shows similarities to the European economic system, benefits mostly from exports. France, Italy and Germany are the most important trading partners. Natural resources such as petroleum, natural gas or zinc, the industrial sector as well as the tourism industry are mainly contributing to Tunisia’s competitiveness on the African continent.
