Foreign Minister Khemaies Jhinaoui has reaffirmed Tunisia’s commitment to building a lasting partnership and expanding trade with Japan.

Tunisia is determined to put in place a new investment framework offering significant opportunities for Japanese investors on the basis of mutual benefit, he added.

Presenting, on Thursday, in Tokyo, a conference on the theme “Tunisia, from democratic transition to economic growth”, the “Sasakawa Peace Foundation”, Jhinaoui reviewed the reforms undertaken by the Tunisian government to promote development and strengthen Tunisia’s competitiveness in terms of external investment.

He also spoke about the characteristics of the Tunisian democratic experience and the factors of its success and talked about the process of democratic transition.

For his part, president of the Foundation, Nobuo Tanaka, praised the Tunisian democratic experience, noting that the awarding of the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize to the National Dialogue Quartet is the result of a Tunisian consensus to make their democratic transition successful.

Several Japanese academics, researchers and journalists as well as businessmen attended the conference.

The Foreign Minister also gave interviews to Japanese media, including the NHK television channel, the Kyodo news agency and the business daily Nikkei.
