||Soundbite by Antonio Tajani (in FRENCH) saying that internationalising their enterprises is the opposite of delocalising. They don't want to leave Europe; they don't want to close their factories in Europe. They want to create new factories in the friendly countries. They also want to create factories in Tunisia with Tunisian entrepreneurs, all together for development and European and African growth.
||Soundbite by Antonio Tajani (in FRENCH) saying that, firstly, guarantying stability and security, sine qua none condition to trust, which is the base of commerce and investment. Secondly, the definition and application of a clear and coherent politic in all the sectors that affect business industry in general, insuring an efficient coordination between the different Ministries implicated. Finally, the creation of a regulated environment, favourable to the business and, moreover for the SME that generate most of their economic growth and employment.

||Soundbite by Antonio Tajani (in FRENCH) saying that they want to work with Tunisian enterprises and as Mister the President said, not to create growth just for growth itself. Growth is an instrument to create new jobs.
They are working in favour of co-localisation. They try to find partners. They try to invest here.
