March 16, 2011 - TAP - Ways to boost Tunisian-Spanish relations in matters of rural women's promotion was the focus of the meeting held on Wednesday in Tunis between Women Affairs Minister Lilia Laabidi and Mr. Caro Guillermo and Mrs. Carmen Aguilar, representatives of the Spanish Agency of International Co-operation for Development in Tunisia.
The meeting looked at means to vitalize development projects binding the two sides and consider launching new projects targeting Tunisian women, particularly in rural areas, with a view to helping them contribute to the development action at this transition stage that requires efforts of all and rejection of all forms of exclusion.
In this regard, Mrs. Laabidi stressed the Department's plan of action, worked out in association with the Ministry of Culture and civil society, to disseminate the values of equality and culture of democracy and citizenship.
