Project Description
Ben Guardane project is a free trade& logistics zone twinned with a touristic resort offering leisure, health and wellness services, close to the Lybian border. Here the targets are primarily Tunisia and Lybian retailers, traders or individuals travelling and secondly, tourists from Djerba zone who could be interested by one day shopping trip. The project rationale is based on the existing and vivid cross-border trade between both Tunisia and Lybia.Ben Gardane is a small town located in Southern Tunisia, 32 km from the Libyan border, 43 km from Zarzis, and 72 km from Djerba island (over a road bridge). The project in Ben Guerdane includes two main components: The logistic platform component is destined for Tunisian and Libyan carriers and exporters to Libya that may be interested in storage including cold storage, packing goods for shipping to the destination market. The pre-feasibility study reports the operators have request relates to tax environment and trade facilitation issues (tax, customs, rental costs in the future logistics area, simplification and alleviation of installation and export procedures). The logistic platform is bonded and all agencies involved in trade should be present and coordinate in order to facilitate the goods flow. The commercial platform consists of 2 different areas 1. One area open to all public and based on the concept of retailtainment where shopping is combined with leisure and touristic offer. Health & wellness activities will complete the concept and are meant to attract regional tourists. 2. The second area of the project is open to all retailers involved in import and export to Libya, they could benefit from regulatory and administrative favorable conditions.
