    Tunisian Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali announced during his diplomatic visit to Saudi Arabia on February 18, that Tunisian visa requirements will be lifted for Saudi citizens.

    During a meeting with Saudi businessmen, Jebali stated that Tunisia has initiated an economic restructuring initiative to provide a better environment for foreign investment in Tunisia.

    “Tunisia will work to remove barriers imposed on investors by the former regime,” said Jebali. He called upon Saudi business partners to work toward reinforcing the modest volume of trade and overcoming barriers associated with maritime and air transportation costs between the two countries.

    The chairman of the board of directors of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Jeddah, Sheikh Salah Abdallah Kamel, stressed that Tunisia has all the attributes of a safe investment environment, adding that he expects an increase in Saudi investment in Tunisia. Kamel called for lifting the impediments to investment by Saudi Arabia in Tunisia, and announced that he will pay an official six day visit to the country by the end of next week.

    A delegation of Saudi businessmen are expected to visit Tunisia between March 12-16 to discuss the promotion and development of cooperation and trade.
