French companies that settle in Tunisia must comply with tax rules (Emmanuel Macron)

“We never create good jobs when we do not respect the rules and we do not develop any good micro or macro economic strategy, based on tax avoidance fraud mechanisms”, said French President Emmanuel Macron at a press conference held Thursday afternoon at the presidential pavilion of El Aouina, at the end of the state visit to Tunisia from 31 January to 1 February 2018.

The French head of state, who was answering a question about the tax relief measures taken by France, against French companies established in Tunisia, which could discourage new investments, said clearly that “when there is to tax adjustments that must be made in Tunisia or France is that there are rules that have not been respected “.

“Tunisia can build its attractiveness, but this can not be done through the circumvention of tax rules,” he added.

In this context, he said he was “committed to supporting the strategy of the president of the republic and the Prime Minister in Tunisia to put in place a clear macroeconomic framework, to consolidate financial and budgetary relations with other powers, to fight against corruption, to have fiscal attractiveness but within the framework of the respect of the rules”

To a question about the French position with regard to the Mediterranean and whether it intends to occupy the position of leader in terms of Mediterranean policy, he stressed “that the Mediterranean countries today have a lot of common questions about terrorism, immigration, economic development. I just said this morning that France needs a Mediterranean policy and that I would propose to some European and Maghreb countries to meet to discuss it together “.

“It is not up to France to articulate alone, a Mediterranean policy but it can take the initiative to organise this dialogue because there is more dialogue on both sides of our shores and it is necessary to restore it. This will perhaps allow to develop a real Mediterranean policy or to trigger again a policy of the Maghreb”, he said.

Reacting to a question about France’s strategy to develop and support the Francophonie, the French president spoke about the opportunities that Tunisia has to become a learning platform for the Francophonie, which will allow it to access several Francophone markets, especially Africans.
