Abstract

The paper analyzes the attractiveness factors of Tunisia with regard to foreign direct investments, considering that the decision of localization is the result not only of the firm?s strategy, but also of the advantages offered by host countries. The estimates are based on qualitative data through a logit model. On the one hand it estimates the probability of reinvestment according to the various attractiveness factors, and on the other hand, it entifies threats of delocalization of the foreign companies to other potentially more attractive territories.
