This year's Circle gathered politicians, heads of enterprise and students. Among the guests of this economic gathering, were Mrs. Valérie Pécresse, France's Budget Minister, and Messrs. Jean Claude Trichet, European Central Bank President, and Jacques Attali, economist and writer.
Mr. Béji Caïd Essebsi made an account on the Tunisian Revolution, stressing the State's important role in carrying out successfully the democratic transition, on the basis of a consensus among all political and economic players and civil society.
At the end of Mr. Caïd Essebsi's presentation, the participants applauded the Tunisian Revolution.
Works of these economists' circle ended up with a final declaration calling on the G8 to materialise a consistent, rapid and unconditional economic aid to Tunisia.
On the fringes of this session, the Interim Premier had talks with Mr. Jean Hervé Lorenzi, president of the Economists' Circle, as well as with several senior leaders of institutions and large international enterprises.
