After arriving for his two day-visit in Tunisia, French President Emmanuel Macron praised the ‘democratic transition’ of the Arab country and promised French support, while meeting with the Tunisian President in Tunis on Wednesday.
“It is an important moment for Tunisia, seven years after the revolution. It is a key moment. I really want to pay tribute to the work that has been done by the presidency and by all the Tunisian people,” said the French leader.
He announced the creation of a 50 million euro ($62 million) support fund of the Initiatives of Young Tunisian Entrepreneurs to “tackle on a very concrete level unemployment rates”.
His Tunisian counterpart Beji Caid Essebsi in turn added that “this visit marks a new start in the relations between Tunisia and France.”
