Friday, July 08, 2011 - TAP - The Korean International Co-operation Agency (KOICA) granted the Public Markets National Observatory (PMNO) a 5.7-million-dollar donation for the achievement of an electronic feeding system project.
The project aims to ensure utilisation of information and communication technologies in public markets, to improve transparency of signing procedures and shorten signing deadlines of these markets and the term of their achievement.
This two-year project is part of the launching of a Tunisian-Korean co-operation project named "Creation of Pilot Electronic Feeding System, E-Procurement, in Tunisia." It will provide access to different services at a single window for both public buyers and private suppliers via a Web site.
This agreement was signed on Friday in Tunis by Mr. Khaled Johmani, Director General in charge of PMNO, and Mrs. Son Song-Hee, chairwoman of KOICA representation in Tunis. Secretary General of the Interim Government Mohamed Salah Ben Aissa and South Korea's ambassador in Tunisia Song Bong-Heon also attended the signing ceremony.
