From 2000 to 2011, there are approximately 15 Chinese official development finance projects identified in Tunisia through various media reports. These projects range from $4.6 million worth of in-kind humanitarian assistance to Tunisia in 2011, to a technical and economic co-operation agreement in 2011, and an in-kind grant of RMB30 million to construct two dams in the Tataouine Governorate in South Tunisia.
