Tunisia: PM to Take Part in 10th Paris SMEs Planet

Paris — Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali will take part Thursday, as a guest of honour, in the 10th Small- and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) Planet, to be held at the Paris Congress Palace.

This annual event is organised by the General Confederation of Small- and Medium-Sized Enterprises (CGSME).

Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali will meet his French counterpart Jean-Marc Ayrault, who will also attend this fair.

The Prime Minister will take the floor, during the event's plenary session, and visit Tunisia's stand.

A seminar on the promotion of the Tunisia-destination as an investment site is scheduled as part of this event.

On the occasion of his visit to France, the Prime Minister will participate, with attendance of Tunisian businessmen and heads of enterprise, in a luncheon-debate with the French Employers' Organisation (MEDEF).

He will be escorted by the Tunisian Industry, Trade and Handicrafts Union (UTICA) Chairwoman and the Chairman of the Tunisian Citizens' Enterprise Confederation (CONECT).

This is Prime Minister Jebali's first visit to France, after the French presidential and legislative elections.

More than 10,000 participants are expected in this year's SMEs Planet, an annual event that gathers French and foreign economic, institutional, political and union partners around lectures, workshops, business meetings, expert analyses and information meetings.
