August 03, 2011 - TAP - The talk, on Wednesday morning, between Interim Prime Minister Béji Caïd Essebsi and Secretary-General of the National Alliance for Peace and Prosperity Party (ANPP) Skander Rekik was an occasion to look at the general situation in the country, particularly regarding the state of the national economy.
ANPP Secretary-General said, in a statement to the press, he had discussed with the Prime Minister the situation of some economic enterprises and the hardships they are facing, in addition to the environmental situation in some parts of the country.
Emphasis was also placed on the need to devise the efficient solutions to help the Tunisian companies implanted in Libya which operate in the infrastructure sector and whose activities dropped sharply, in addition to examining the issue of call centres so as to create additional jobs and tackle the issue of supplying the market in basic products, notably in the context of the crisis experienced by Libya.
In this connection, Mr. Skander Rekik suggested to set up organised circuits to make food products reach the Libyan people, on the one hand, and organise the sector of second-hand clothes which has been affected by the anarchic exportation to the Algerian market, on the other.
The meeting was attended by delegate minister to the Prime Minister Ridha Belhaj.
