USAID Visit Tunisia Activity and CrossBoundary Launch Investment Facilitation Support Effort in Tourism Sector
The USAID Visit Tunisia Activity has opened a call for expressions of interest from Tunisian tourism businesses and projects seeking investment facilitation support.
In partnership with CrossBoundary, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) will mobilize more than 20 million USD in private capital in the tourism sector. By mobilizing private investment, the USAID Visit Tunisia Activity aims to grow and diversify Tunisian tourism, increase tourism revenues and generate sustainable jobs.
Under this program, CrossBoundary will provide a range of transaction advisory services to companies and investors in order to expand access to capital and facilitate investments in Tunisia’s tourism sector.
CrossBoundary’s support, funded by USAID, is available to Tunisian businesses and domestic and international investors seeking expertise on the fundraising lifecycle, including building financial models and other investor materials, investor outreach, and transaction negotiations.
