Tunisia: President Marzouki and Speaker of Indonesia's Parliament Look At Prospects for Developing Bilateral Co-Operation

Carthage — Speaker of the Indonesian parliament Ali Marzouki asserted, on Saturday, his country's commitment to encourage Indonesian businessmen to invest in Tunisia and increase the volume of trade exchanges between the two countries.

Following his meeting with President Moncef Marzouki, he voiced regret that "the volume of commercial exchanges is far lower than what is hoped for."

A communiqué of the Presidency of the Republic reports that the speaker of the Indonesian parliament said that he reviewed with M. Moncef Marzouki means to boost bilateral co-operation, particularly in the economic and higher-education areas.

In this connection, the two sides agreed to encourage scientific and university exchanges and to ease studies procedures for Tunisian and Indonesian students in both countries.
