The Government of Tunisia is looking to build new administrative city at the outskirts of the capital Tunis. The city will be a hub for all central public institutions that will benefit from shared support services. The estimated cost of the project is TND 1 500 million.
The main objective of the New Administrative City is to accelerate the national and regional growth by gathering all ministries and administrative institutions in one place, which will facilitate government action and save the costs of travel of ministers and officials of the administration. In order to develop a state-of-the-art new city, additional public and private stakeholders will be consulted to prepare the master plan of the new city, enable private sector development in real estate and business activities, and ensure an efficient and business-friendly environment.

The new administrative city will help the Government to overcome challenges that arise from scattering of ministries and administration in different districts of the capital causing the following issues: ? Access difficulties for citizens and civil servants (parking, congestion, traffic) ? High costs (security, duplication of services) ? Pollution ? A great waste of time and energy ? A lack of efficiency and synergy ? A high cost of rents for administrative premises in the order of 34 million of dinars per year ? Dispersion of services, for example, the Presidency of the Government is spread over 4 distant sites, the MDICI on 2 sites, etc.
Establishing a New Administrative City aims at creating an innovative city in terms of quality of living based on indicators, such as: air quality, water, green spaces, waste handling, energy consumption, health issues, urban mobility and logistics.
Key features of this city include: centralized smart governance, smart mobility and smart energy.
