Essebsi meets EU officials to boost Tunisian economy

Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi is meeting European Union officials in Brussels to discuss ways to boost his country's economy.

"The first visit by a Tunisian president to European Union institutions comes at a time when we are celebrating the 40th anniversary of the first cooperation agreement signed in 1976. Our meetings demonstrate at the highest level our determination to take a new step within the framework of a strategic relationship," the EU said in a statement.

"These encounters reflect at the same time the depth of the ties that bind us and the Tunisian democratic."

The meeting comes after the two-day International Investment Conference, Tunisia 2020, which concluded on Wednesday in Tunis.

Saudi Arabia, Qatar and France have promised more than $1 dollars in financial support for Tunisia aimed at reviving the country's ailing economy.
