Tunis — Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali said that the environmental degradation and the uncontrolled accumulation of waste on squares and streets of the Tunisian cities do not fit Tunisia's image and its reputation when it starts to resume its place of tourist destination.
"These are also phenomena which threaten the citizen's health in all the regions," added the Prime Minister when chairing, Monday, a cabinet meeting devoted to the examination of the negligence of cleanliness in most squares and streets of the Tunisian cities.
These aspects of negligence which could increase in summer with the proliferation of uncontrolled dumps and the regression of the performance of the municipalities do not fit Tunisia's image and threaten the citizen's health, warned Mr. Hamadi Jebali.
According to a communiqué of the Prime Ministry, the meeting was an occasion to present data on the situation of cleanliness in the country and the causes of the regression of the niches of environment protection and appropriate solutions.
This issue will be examined during the next cabinet meeting to undertake concrete measures likely to circumscribe this phenomenon in the shortest terms underlined the communiqué.
