Tunisia Wants to be a Gateway to Turkey in Africa

Hatem Ferjani, Tunisian Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs in charge of Economic Diplomacy informed the general public about the new positioning that Tunisia wants to operate in Africa, with the help of Turkey. In his words, Turkey is distinguished by a very good representation in “African capitals and its airline ‘Turkish Airlines’ serves a large number of these capitals. On this basis, argues Mr Ferjani, “a tripartite Africa-Tunisia Turkey partnership will thus improve trade between the three parties concerned”.

Hatem Ferjani also believes that the opportunities for exchange and partnership between Tunisia and Turkey lie in a multitude of sectors of industry: like the mechanical industry, textiles, ready-to-wear , electronics and infrastructure.
