    Salmi called for the adoption of a new marketing strategy that steers clear from the traditional reliance on images of the sea and sun. He said a new advertising campaign was needed to highlight Tunisia as the birthplace of the first peaceful Arab revolution, a country of free people, and of security and democracy.

    Tourism is the country's biggest source of foreign currency. With nearly 400,000 people working in the sector, it is also the nation's second largest employer. However, the dramatic drop in visitors during the past few months alarmed many working in the industry.

    L'autre jour j'étais dans une agence de voyage en France et je discutais avec la vendeuse, elle m'expliquait que 65% des francais cette année n'yraient pas en Tunisie, à cause du boycottage qu'il y a eu sur les produits Français le mois dernier, et suite comme le peuple Tunisien avait traiter de lache, le racisme qu'ils ont démontrer contre nous etc... j'ai même appris qu'en ce moment beaucoup d'entreprises Françaises quittaient le pays et que les autres sociétés étaient fermés depuis la révolution du Jasmin. C'est dommage d'en arriver à ce point là.
