Tunisia hopes for trade growth with Egypt, Tunisian Minister of Investment, Development, and International Cooperation Mohammed Fadel Abdel Kafi told Ahram Online at Tunisia’s 2020 investment conference.

Abdel Kafi said in exclusive statements to Ahram Online that the size of economic cooperation was still tenuous, adding that he met Egypt’s minister of international cooperation, Sahar Nasr, in November to discuss economic cooperation between the two countries.

In November, Nasr and her Tunisian counterpart discussed means to enhance cooperation between the two sides in the upcoming period, especially in the international, regional and Arab financial institutions, to obtain optimum benefit from both countries’ development partners.

Nasr put emphasis on increasing cooperation between the ministries in economic development projects in Egypt and Tunisia.

On Egyptian investors participation in the Tunisian conference, Abdel Kafi said that several Egyptian investors attended the conference, yet considered Egyptian participation overall as “weak.”

The minister, however, did not rule out reaching agreements of cooperation in the tourism field.
