Tunisian week: a stronger EU - Tunisia partnership

BRUSSELS, Belgium, May 4, 2017/APO/ --

"Cooperation between our two parliaments has emerged stronger from this Tunisian week", said European Parliament Vice-President David-Maria Sassoli as the event closed on Thursday. "We must now give concrete form to the shared experiences and good practices, to benefit all our citizens", he added.

From 2 to 4 May, Members of the European Parliament (EP) and their counterparts from the Assembly of Representatives of the People (ARP) shared their experiences of parliamentary, legislative and representative good practices. In various workshops, they debated, in particular:

ARP President Mohammed Ennaceur said "Stepping up European aid to the new Tunisia will be crucially important and will be a big help in laying the foundations of a real and effective strategic partnership that matches the challenges that Tunisia faces".

"You can count on our support; we are in favour of stepping up European Union assistance under the various partnership instruments. It is important not only to consolidate economic growth, but also to ensure that it is sustainable", said European Parliament President Antonio Tajani at the 2 May opening of the Tunisian week at the European Parliament.
