Iran, Tunisia to strengthen economic ties

TEHRAN (FNA)- A delegation of Tunisian businessmen is in Iran to study different ways of increasing economic and trade interactions between the two countries.

The commercial and economic delegation visited a number of industrial units of Alborz province, near Tehran, on Wednesday.

Hossein Tousi, the head of provincial Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture, said the 15-member delegation arrived in the province to become acquainted with its production and industrial potentials.

He noted that the industrial and commercial centers of the province are expected to sign deals with Tunisian delegates in the fields of construction, civil engineering, medicine, transportation, furniture and home appliances manufacturing and agriculture.

Tousi noted that the ground has been prepared for traders and businessmen of the province to hold direct talks with their Tunisian counterparts.

The official said Tunisia can act as a gateway for the import and export of commodities to and from Africa.

Tousi said a trade and commercial agreement has been prepared, which will be signed with the Tunisian delegation.

Earlier this month, Tunisian President Mohammad Monsef al-Marzuki in a meeting with new Iranian Ambassador to Tunis Mostafa Boroujerdi underlined that his country is willing to expand all-out cooperation with Iran.

“Iran and Tunisia should try harder to broaden bilateral ties,” the Tunisian president said during the meeting in Tunis.

President Marzuki, meantime, voiced pleasure in his recent meeting with his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani on the sidelines of the annual UN General Assembly meeting in New York in September.
