During a discovery tour with Tech216 in Tunis, the BMW Group was able to get an overview of the local supplier market and to quickly establish contact with potential Tunisian IT suppliers. Exceeding initial expectations, many IT companies in Tunisia already had established supplier relationships with other European groups, the language barrier was smaller than expected and the high standards for cooperation – for example on data security – were already met in advance by some suppliers.
„The increasing number
of IT companies (to over 2000 today)
shows how dynamic the Tunisian market is.“Dr. Andreas Bootz, BMW Group
