Tunisian News Agency: Tunisia, Greece sign MoU in investment as joint committee meeting opens

A Memorandum of Understanding between the Foreign Investment Promotion Agency (FIPA) and Enterprise Greece was signed on Tuesday.

This is a renewal of an old cooperation between the two companies promoting Tunisian and Greek investment, Greek Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Dimitris Mardas said at the opening of the 10th session of the Tunisian-Greek Joint Committee.

“We will welcome all investment initiatives and we will seek to develop them in the framework of this co-operation which will bring together several areas including, renewable energy, building, pharmaceuticals, olive oil …” he explained in a statement to TAP.

He added that two other memoranda of understanding will be signed; the first between Enterprise Greece and CEPEX and the second in the field of health.

For his part, Sabri Bachtobji noted that this co-operation is likely to facilitate foreign investment in Tunisia and trade between the two countries.

“We also count on the participation of Greek investors in the international investment conference scheduled for November 29 and 30,” he told TAP.

Sabri Bachtobji stressed the need to restore the air link between the two countries.

Work of the 10th session of the Committee will be closed Wednesday morning.
