“So many people ask why Tunisia? In fact Tunisia is a country that is quite exceptional on the African continent. Tunisia provides more than 40,000 high quality computer engineers each year , and we are culturally close to Europe.

We made the smart move.”

If I can tell you one thing it is that Tunisia is the place to be right now, take it as an advice.”
