MOSCOW, March 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian and Tunisian businessmen will hold a forum on May 19-20 to discuss prospects for broader investment cooperation, says Ali Gutali, Tunisian Ambassador to Russia.
“We are preparing for a meeting of the Business Council that will take place in Tunisia,” he said on Wednesday. “We expect a representative delegation of Russian businessmen, who will be able to study Tunisia’s investment opportunities. We hope that, within the upcoming years, cooperation between our countries will broaden. Nevertheless, we are developing a whole range of measures to encourage investment.”
The ambassador called tourism the most important area of cooperation. Khaled Trabelsi, director-general of Tunisia’s tourism agency, who is visiting Moscow to take part in the ongoing international tourism exhibition Inturmarket, supported his opinion.
“We have already been developing the tourism industry for 50 years,” he said. “We have injected strong investments, built hotels and improved beaches. Moreover, Tunisia can be easily called a museum under the open skies.”
“In 2013, over 300,000 Russian tourists visited Tunisia,” Trabelsi said, adding that this year around 7 million tourists from all over the world came to Tunisia. “We hope that the number of Russian guests will grow and we are ready to offer them alternative programs, in particular health resorts," he noted.
