Tunisia attends Ministerial Meeting of Tokyo International Conference on African Development in Maputo

Tunisia attended the Ministerial Meeting of the Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD) held August 24-25 in Maputo, Mozambique.

Tunisia was represented by Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Sabri Bachtobji.

This conference, launched by Japan in 1993, eyes a high-level political dialogue with African leaders about ways to help the continent achieve economic and social development.

“Maputo ministerial meeting is an opportunity to assess progress made in the implementation of recommendations of TICAD 6 Summit Meeting in Nairobi (August 27-28, 2016),” reads a Foreign Ministry press release.

It was also an opportunity to focus on ways to increase economic growth, uphold good governance and develop health, education and vocational training systems in African countries.

Bachtobji said Tunisia is committed to these targets; items on the agenda of the meeting are a priority for Tunisia which has embarked on a reform process geared towards economic growth and social development.

On the sidelines of the conference, Bachtobji had a talk with Japan’s Parliamentary Vice-Minister for Foreign Affairs Manabu HORII. Bilateral cooperation and African and international issues of common interest were examined.

The Secretary of State also met with several senior Mozambican officials. Opportunities for cooperation were looked at, particularly in vocational training, manufacturing industries, agribusiness, tourism and transport.
