German Chancellor Angela Merkel visited the startup Haus Tunis late Friday afternoon, accompanied by Minister of Vocational Training and Employment Imed Hammami, German Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development Gerd Muller and Secretary of State for Vocational Training and Private Initiative Saida Ounissi.
Merkel got acquainted with the activities of the startup Haus Tunis. She spoke with a group of young Tunisian entrepreneurs about the prospects of the Tunisian-German partnership in the Tunisian entrepreneurship sector, the Tunisian startups and the challenges encountered, as well as encouragement for private initiative and support for young entrepreneurs in Tunisia.
Projects of young Tunisian promoters in the sectors of agriculture, new technologies and interior decoration, were presented on this occasion.
A presentation was also made of the new Tunisian-German Information Center for Employment, Migration and Reintegration inaugurated on Friday morning in Tunis by Minister of Vocational Training and Employment, Imed Hammami and his counterpart German Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development, Gerd Muller.
Funded by the German government, this centre, which is part of the “Migration for Development” programme, aims to accompany many Tunisians seeking new professional opportunities abroad but who are not sufficiently informed on how to get there and to establish themselves successfully.
It also aims to promote the legal mobility of Tunisians with a professional profile in Germany, in particular engineers and technicians, and to open up new prospects in Tunisia for jobseekers through vocational retraining and training for self-employment.
Startup Haus-Tunis is a coworking space located in the centre of Tunis to promote the corporate culture, foster a sense of community in the ecosystem, provide a space for the exchange of ideas, peer-to-peer learning and capacity building and opportunities. During the last three years, Enpact has accompanied 30 Startups in Tunisia.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel arrived Friday in Tunis for an official visit at the invitation of President Beji CaA�d Essebsi.
