A technical cooperation agreement in the field of aeronautics was signed Wednesday in Washington between the cargo company “Special Cargo” under the airline Express Air-Cargo and the US aerospace manufacturer Boeing.
This agreement comes on the sidelines of the working and friendship visit that Prime Minister Youssef Chahed is paying in Washington.
Express Air Cargo CEO Anis Riahi said that with the signing of this technical cooperation agreement, a new project has just been materialised for the installation of an aeronautical maintenance centre in Tunisia for export.
This project, whose cost stands at 90 million dinars, will allow, according to Riahi, to provide job opportunities to Tunisian engineers of aeronautics.
It will start operating in March 2018, he said.
