Investing in Tunisia’s health and education sector has been a major priority for the government. In recent times, Tunisia has witnessed strong improvements in key health outcomes, thanks in part to the provision of health care coverage to the bulk of the population. Also, the private health care industry is growing rapidly, bolstered to some extent by a well-established medical tourism sector. In the education sector, industry figures point to ample room for investment and expansion, provided the country continues to make progress in areas such as gaining international accreditation for local institutions and improving transport links with promising source markets. This chapter contains an interview with Hatem Ben Salem, Minister of Education.
