UGTT closing seminar “for recognition of social and solidarity economy sector in Tunisia and its institutionalisation”

The main results of the advocacy project for the promotion and recognition of the social and solidarity economy (SSE) sector in Tunisia were presented on Monday in Tunis at the closing seminar organised by the Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT) on the theme “for the recognition of the sector of the social and solidarity economy (ESS) in Tunisia and its institutionalisation”.

Coordinator of the project, Souad Khallouli, affirmed that the objective of this project is to contribute to the promulgation of an ESS law and its effective application in public policies.

“In a broader manner, this project will help public recognition of the contribution of the SSE to sustainable and inclusive economic growth in Tunisia,” she said.

Khallouli said the goal is to improve legal and financial frameworks, as well as to raise awareness of the SSE sector through advocacy involving all key actors, including civil society and political parties.

Today’s seminar, she explained, concludes the regional seminars that have been held since August 2017, as part of a national campaign for the promotion and recognition of SSE in Tunisia.

According to the project coordinator, these seminars have identified the issues and expectations for the creation of a SSE law, the reasons why it is necessary to have a legislative and identify obstacles faced by the SSE actors in the field and list the recommendations in favour of the SSE sector.

These seminars, which were organised in the premises of the UGTT, had targeted the unions, associations, SSE structures and administrations, with 100 participants per seminar, she said.

Among the main recommendations stemming from these seminars are particularly the need for the promulgation of the organic law relating to the SSE sector, the valorisation of this economy, the adaptation of the SSE sector to the requirements of decentralisation and the creation of a unitary and representative structure of the ESS and an observatory to monitor the evolution of the sector and its added value.
