“We have investment projects in Tunisia and we will work with a group of economic operators to iron out the obstacles hindering the development of the Tunisian economy competitiveness,” said Vice-President of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) Pierre Heilbronn.

He added, following a meeting with Prime Minister Youssef Chahed Wednesday, that they had discussed means to foster partnership and cooperation with Tunisia and follow up the progress of development projects and programs funded by the EBRD.

Pierre Heilbronn also pointed out that the meeting is based on the momentum established by the International Forum on Public-Private Partnerships inaugurated by the PM on Tuesday, during which Tunisia presented 33 projects requiring funding from donors worth 13 billion dinars.
