(TAP) - Prime Minister Youssef Chahed gave, Thursday afternoon in the Borj Cedria Technopark, the official kick-off of the National Days of Entrepreneurship and Business Creation in all governorates of the country, under the theme "financial benefits of the new investment law and tax benefits".

On this occasion, he visited the business incubator of the Borj Cedria Technopark, where he got acquainted with the various activities, projects and initiatives of the young promoters, encouraging them to further develop their projects.

The Prime Minister said the projects carried out by a number of young promoters are success stories and constitute a model for young people and especially among unemployed higher education graduates.

He spoke with several young promoters about their successful projects in the areas of services, technology, agriculture, industry and others.

Chahed voiced the State's concern to lay down all the foundations for the success of project creation and entrepreneurship, recalling, in this respect, the measures and legislation set up to boost investment, including the new Investment Law and the Start-up Act, a new legal framework that will encourage investment in the technology and digital economy sectors.

He announced that a government decree will be issued next week. It will lay down all the necessary authorisations for the implementation of projects, their deadlines and the conditions for granting them, and the recognition of the principle that the silence of the administration after exceeding the statutory deadlines constitutes in itself an authorisation, in addition to the promulgation of the government decree organising the SME Support Fund.

On the occasion of the PM’s visit, students protested outside the Borj Cedria Technopark, claiming clarifications on the fate of the current academic year
