February 02, 2012 - TAP - The visit of Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali Thursday in Brussels, leading a strong ministerial delegation, will provide the occasion for Tunisia to present its plans of co-operation as regards financial support, the development of programs of political, administrative and financial reforms and to boost good governance and provide support to the economy in crisis.
The Tunisian-European Task Force meeting last September in Tunis, had prepared a document on Tunisia's advanced status within the EU and the new framework for co-operation.
Mrs. Nawel Ben Romdhane, Director General at the Ministry of Investment and International co-operation, told TAP news agency that the aim of this visit is the setting up of a European-Tunisian businessmen's council, co-operation in matters of employment, regional development, vocational training and retraining and in promoting the tourism sector.
The Task force and the association council will meet in the first three months of 2012 to define projects relating to such co-operation.
The European Union has already confirmed its decision to significantly increase its support to Tunisia through allocating 400 million euros for 2011-2013 instead of 240 million euros before the revolution.
