Yazaki's Om Larayes plant

The Ministry of Industry and Technology and several civil society organizations have been frantically negotiating with the Japanese company, Yazaki Group, in an effort to reopen the factorty that was recently shutdown in Gafsa (southern Tunisia).

Yazaki’s Om Larayes plant in Gafsa was officially closed on December 20. Several days of strikes disrupted production at the company, which led to significant losses. Yazaki, a cabling firm, employed 2,200 workers in Gafsa, and the closure of the facility has amplified the already burdensome strain of unemployment on the region.

The press attaché of the Ministry of Industry and Technology asserted that the ministry is working hard to convince the company to reopen the Om Larayes branch. He also mentioned that the Ministry of International Cooperation is concerting efforts to coax foreign corporations to return Tunisia – in accordance with new government’s policy to restablish foreign trust in the investment environment in Tunisia.

Zina Brichini, the management director of Yazaki in Gafsa, asserted that nothing has yet been confirmed. She claimed that a final decision will be made by the end of next week.
