Tunis/Tunisia — The House of People's Representatives (HPR) started Wednesday the examination of three draft laws of financial agreements on inclusive development, irrigated agriculture and the acquisition of equipment of Turkish origin and will then discuss the amendments to be introduced in the counter-terrorism and money laundering law.

The session chaired by HPR Speaker Mohamed Ennaceur was attended by 115 MPs and Development, Investment and International Co-operation Minister Zied Laadhari.
