Building upon its strong performance in 2017, the Tunisian tourism industry is poised to carry on growing both in terms of the number of arrivals and overall revenues. Since ebbing to a low point in 2015, owing to two security incidents, the sector has rebounded to nearly 2014 levels. The government has significantly improved the security situation since 2015, particularly in major tourist destinations. New markets and investors are generating meaningful gains, and both the government and private sector appear committed to the sector’s continued development, solidifying the industry’s position as an integral part of the economic future. The strong performance of the sector in 2017 and early 2018 gives the industry reason to be optimistic. This chapter contains an interview with Ahmed Khalaf, General Manager, Four Seasons Hotel Tunisia.
