Tunisia: Presidency of Republic, National Archives Conclude Co-Operation Agreement

Carthage — A co-operation agreement was concluded Wednesday between the Presidency of the Republic and Tunisia's National Archives.

The agreement was signed by Director of the President's Office Imed Daïmi and National Archives Director-General Hédi Jalleb.

The convention provides for inventorying the photographs, documents, personal correspondence and political reports preserved by the Presidency of the Republic's services, in collaboration with the National Archives in order to digitise, restore, caption and index them in compliance with international standards.

"Archives--paper and electronic--safeguarded in the national archives will remain at the disposal of the Presidency of the Republic, according to the regulation in force," the agreement stipulates.

The Presidency of the Republic's archives include photos, personal documents and reports which mark the period spanning pre-independence till the mid-eighties.

They relate notably leader Habib Bourguiba's work, struggle and visits to Arab and foreign countries and in midland regions, and his meetings with various political personalities.
