TUNIS (TAP) - "The United Nations system is motivated to further develop its programmes with post-revolution Tunisia, in view of the climate favourable to co-operation prevailing in the country", said on Thursday United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Resident Representative in Tunisia Mohamed Belhocin.
Therefore, the United Nations Organisation intends to support the next election process in the country, he declared at the end of his meeting Thursday with Interim Prime Minister Ali Larayedh.
The UN representative went on saying that the meeting had allowed to review the co-operation programmes of the UN in general and of the UNDP in particular, with Tunisia.
He spoke in this regard of such fields as democratic governance, institutional reforms and support to the National Constituent Assembly, in addition to the working out of regional and national policies aimed to create jobs for youths.
The point is also to develop the statistics system in Tunisia, notably the assessment of the rate of poverty, Belhocine said.
