The European Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, Johannes Hahn, will lead an unprecedented delegation of eight development financial institutions to Tunisia on 12th July. Together, these partners will reaffirm their support to Tunisia, particularly for the country's socio-economic reform programme aimed at stimulating growth and employment generation.

The delegation comprises senior representatives of the Agence française de développement, African Development Bank, European Investment Bank, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, International Monetary Fund, International Finance Corporation, KFW, and World Bank.

The mission will meet with the President of the Republic, the Head of the Government and several of its Cabinet members, as well as with the Parliament (Assemblée des Représentants du Peuple) and with representatives of the private sector. Discussions will focus on the ambitious programme of socio-economic reforms set by the Government, which aims at boosting economic activity notably by unleashing private sector development, maintaining fiscal and external stability and strengthening social protection.

Photos and videos of the visit will be available on EbS.
