Tunis, 10th July, 2012. The workshop aimed to provide 80 executives working in the Tunisian Ministries and public enterprises with technical training and help them develop achievable projects that could be funded.
Since its launch, in March 2010, the UfM has been endeavouring to energise partnership and co-operation between the Mediterranean northern and southern rims, through the achievement of regional projects which have a palpable impact on local citizens.
The Secretary General of the UfM, Fathallah Sijilmassi, paid a visit to Tunisia last June and held talks with the Ministers of Foreign Affairs, Investment and International Co-operation and in Charge of Economic Issues.
He briefed them about the various activities and projects carried out as part of the UfM and discussed with them co-operation prospects between Tunisia and the organization.
