Governor of the Central Bank of Tunisia, Marouane EL Abassi, said that the beginnings of a modernisation of the exchange regulations will be visible soon. This concerns, in particular, the digitalisation of the investment sheet and the establishment of procedures for the free transfer of the real product net of the sale or liquidation of the invested capital by means of a foreign currency import.

The governor was speaking to a panel of young exporters who wanted to inform the BCT of the difficulties encountered, particularly in terms of foreign exchange and financing in their international activities, said Friday the BCT.

EL Abassi also announced to them the gradual merger of off-shore and on-shore regimes through the publication of the easing circulars on non-resident companies’ access to leasing financing, the facilitation of issuance by the resident banks of the usual sureties for the accounts of these companies …

He also assured that the relevant services of the BCT will continue their efforts to find the appropriate solutions to the financing difficulties mentioned by the young exporters, being reassuring as to the progress of the preparation of the implementing texts of the ” Startup Act “under the prerogatives of the issuing institution.

The debate focused on means to be activated quickly in order to support the internationalisation of Tunisian companies, especially SMEs. In this regard, the need to have “a financial environment conducive to a successful exporting SME” came back as a leitmotif throughout the meeting.
