Tunis — A memorandum of understanding (MoU) on information and communication technologies (ICTs) and postal services was signed on Friday in Tunis between Tunisia and Libya.
The agreement was signed by ICTs Minister Mongi Marzouk and Libyan Telecommunications Minister Anouar Fitouri. This MoU provides for developing bilateral co-operation in the ICTs and mailing fields, as well as for exchanging expertise and experiences in the e-services area.
On this occasion, the two officials stressed the need to ensure follow-up of the agreement's implementation by means of creating working teams, increasing meetings and encouraging private sector's investment in this field. At the end of the signing ceremony, the Libyan Minister pointed out that "Libya's telecommunications sector needs foreign experts who would be hired by Libya's Labour Ministry."
"Priority of recruitment is to be given to sisterly countries like Tunisia," he insisted.
