March. 24, 2011 – TAP  - Ways to boost decentralized Tunisian-French co-operation and local governance and establish an intra-regional information system were the focal points of the talk, held on Thursday, by Regional Development Minister Abderrazak Zouari and French Minister in charge of Industry, Energy and Digital Economy Eric Besson, who is on a working visit in Tunisia.
Mr. Besson said a reflection has been engaged to examine possibilities to re-direct projects planned by France in Tunisia to internal regions.
He also emphasized the need to establish regional and decentralized co-operation between Tunisia and France, while taking into account the Non-Governmental Organizations’ and local communities' initiatives.
The French Minister called to help young promoters of Tunisian small-and medium-sized firms to benefit from French expertise through technology transfer and use of new information and communication technologies.
