We want the private sector to be a driving force of development in the African countries,” Prime Minister Youssef Chahed said on Thursday in Bamako, Mali.

He called on all Tunisian economic players to capture the African market which is a space favourable for business and investment especially in such promising sectors as environment, energy, health and education.

Speaking at the opening of the Tunisia-Mali Economic Forum, he said his African tour has helped him find with the political officials he met a real willingness to draw on the Tunisian experience and expertise in different fields.

Mali’s Prime Minister Modibo Keita said Tunisia has supported his country for more than five decades to help it promote the social-economic conditions.

He expressed hope to see this support continue through building a real partnership and carrying out joint projects.

Chahed later visited the Tunisian private university “Montplaisir” where he met its president Dorra Trabelsi who said this university that opened last September hosts 60 students.

She added that the number will double in view of the increase in the applications for admission.

Chahed also met with Mali’s President of the National Assembly Issaka Sidibe and will later be received by Mali’s president.
