IIn light of Tunisia's new constitution, the Young Professionals in Foreign Policy and Tunisian American Young Professionals will host a discussion on Monday March 3 at 6:30 PM to discuss the successes the country has experienced and the path that lies ahead with regards to development and economic growth. Many regard Tunisia's post-revolution story as a model for the other Arab Spring countries. What has set Tunisia apart from its counterparts in the region and what challenges will it now face as it begins to move towards economic recovery? The discussion will feature distinguished panelists including former Minister of Planning and Regional Development and former Central Bank of Tunisia governor Mustapha Kamel Nabli, Tunisian-American Enterprise Fund Chairman Bowman Cutter and Congressional Research Service's Maghreb specialist, Alexis Arieff. The discussion will be moderated by TAYP's Board Chairman Mohamed Malouche.
