Significant under-exploited natural resources in Tataouine, says Jalloul

A conference on gypsum, silica sand and the offered prospects in Tataouine governorate was organised on Wednesday in Tatouine by the Tunisian Institute for Strategic Studies (French: ITES) in collaboration with the German Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Foundation.

Emphasis was laid on the region’s natural resources and offered opportunities to conquer markets and create promising processing industries.

ITES Director-General Neji Jalloul highlighted the contrast between natural resources and the competences existing in the region on the one hand and the high unemployment rate and poor infrastructure on the other, pointing out that the governorate has the 2nd reserves of gypsum in the world and important quantities of high-quality sand and marble.

This conference is the 3rd of its kind organised by the ITES, preceded by similar meetings focusing on salt and the maritime strategy in Tunisia, aimed to propose solutions to posed challenges and provide support to concerned structures.

Land issues are the main impediments to investment in useful substances, Expert Samir Bouaziz told TAP, calling for making the most of conducted studies.

Besides, the participants recommended to initiate wealth- and job-generating projects in the country and to set up research and development centres in the region to open up prospects to investors and guarantee a sustainable management of reaches.

They proposed the creation of an industrial pole within the framework a public-private-partnership (PPP).
