Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Sabri Bachtobji, on Monday, discussed with Congolese Minister Delegated in charge of Congolese Abroad Emmanuel Ilunga an air transport agreement.
Bachtobji said “Tunisia is preparing to inaugurate a direct flight to the Democratic Republic of Congo”.
Tunisia gives special importance to strengthening relations with Congo, he said, recalling, in this regard, the opening since 2018 of a Tunisian trade representation in Kinshasa.
The second session of the Tunisian-Congolese joint commission, expected during the second half of 2018, will allow the signing of new bilateral cooperation agreements of a priority nature.
The Congolese government wants to strengthen its cooperation with Tunisia in areas where it benefits from vanguard experience, like higher education, vocational training, training of trainers, civil aviation and incentive mechanisms for investment, the Congolese minister who is heading a delegation on a v sit to Tunisia from April 15 to 17, 2018 said on his part.
He also stressed his country’s desire to intensify trade between countries, particularly through the import of construction products.
