Jobs and stability: EU-Tunisia industry cooperation forges ahead

Tunisia's considerable progress in aligning the legislative system and the quality infrastructure with those of the EU could soon enable full access to the Single Market  for products that will be negotiated within the scope of an agreement on conformity assessment and acceptance of industrial products (ACAA).

During his visit to Tunesia on 9 March 2012, European Commission Vice President Antonio Tajani and Tunesian Minister for Industry and Commerce Mohammed Lamine Chakhari signed a joint declaration to stress the two parties' wish and dedication to wrapping up the preparatory phase and open market access negotiations as soon as possible, with a view to signing an ACAA agreement in the near future. Thus, the visit reinforced co-operation to permit industry and SMEs to fully exploit the commercial relations potential between Tunisia and the EU.
