President Beji Caid Essebsi expressed Wednesday in Riyadh Tunisia’s commitment to provide an environment conducive to business and resolve the difficulties faced by Saudi investors and businessmen.
Caid Essebsi, whose official visit to Saudi Arabia ended on Wednesday, stressed that the Tunisian government has already taken an important step in supporting private investment, through the adoption of a Public/Private Partnership Act.
Pending approval of the draft investment code, “Tunisia remains ready to welcome Saudi investors in particular and Arab investors in general,” said the Head of State who was speaking at a meeting with Saudi businessmen held at the headquarters of the council of Saudi chambers.
He, on this occasion, stressed the significant investment opportunities in Tunisia, a country that has qualified human resources, adding that stability has returned to regions.
Caid Essebsi reiterated “his personal commitment to reducing the difficulties facing Saudi investors in Tunisia.”
He added that “Tunisia aspires to get out of the situation of economic stagnation through regional cooperation and fostering partnerships in various growth sectors.”
“Joint action and strengthening of inter-Arab cooperation are the best ways to address all the common political and economic obstacles,” said the head of state.
Caid Essebsi also stressed the need to increase trade between Tunisia and Saudi Arabia.
