Tunisia - Electricity Distribution Network Rehabilitation Project (Electricity VII) - Project Completion Report (PCR)
In efforts to enhance the competitiveness of local enterprises within a context of economic liberalization, the Government of Tunisia undertook key reforms, including basic infrastructure upgrading. In 2003, the country’s economic development and improvement of the standard of living of the population brought about strong growth in electricity consumption (about 12% annually), leading to saturation of part of the distribution networks and degradation of the quality of service. To improve the quality of its service, STEG, in the 10 th Five-Year Socioeconomic Development Plan (2002-2006), defined an electricity distribution network rehabilitation and modernization programme of which the Project (Electricity VII) forms an integral part.
