“Rjim Maatoug project helps to immunise southern region” (Ennaceur)

Speaker of the House of People’s Representatives (HPR) Mohamed Ennaceur, on Sunday, recommended carrying out projects similar to the development project of Rjim Maatoug in the different areas of the Sahara.

This is in view of what it uses in terms of human and natural resources as well as renewable energies, thus constituting a production force and a reserve of development capable of turning the Tunisian south into a source of economic wealth of export support and attracting foreign investors, he added according to a statement from the HPR.

Ennaceur, who visited the area together with several MPs and ambassadors as well as officials of the Presidency of the Republic and the Government pointed out that the “protection of Tunisian borders requires a comprehensive approach based on the developmental and social spheres in support of armed and security intervention”, stressing that the Rjim Maatoug project contributes to” immunising the region “.

He added that the HPR supports the state’s move to generalize these projects in the framework of co-operation and investment programmes with countries partners of Tunisia.

The visit, make under the auspices of the Ministry of National Defence, is part of monitoring the second part of the Rjim Maatoug Zone Pilot Development Project aimed at strengthening development in the region for the benefit of its population, with funding from Tunisia’s partners.

The Speaker of the Parliament said this pilot project is a source of pride for the Tunisian national army, which deserves consideration.

He also highlighted the interventions of various ministries in this project, saying that the latter is one of the most successful projects in southern Tunisia, knowing that oases have been created for the nomadic inhabitants of the region, for nearly 30 years, in order to settle them, improve their living conditions and protect the Saharan borders.

This project was created by the Rjim Maatoug Development Office, a public institution under the supervision of the Ministry of National Defence.

Several Tunisian students forced to perform their military service in the 80s and 90s by the regime in place, at that time, had contributed to its achievement, through the construction of screens to stop the advance of the Sahara and the plantation of trees in the areas of “El Matrouha 1” and “El Matrouha 2” as well as in the village of Rjim Maatoug, in addition to the construction of houses currently inhabited by farmers of agricultural subdivisions in the region.
