Following the publication of the priority themes identified by the Tunisian Ministry of Agriculture, Water Resources and Fisheries (MARHP), the EU-funded ENPARD South Support Programme will organise in Tunis in collaboration with the Ministry, three workshops to discuss and exchange on the challenges and issues facing Tunisian agriculture stakeholders and to launch the second phase of the support programme.

The workshops will take place on 8 and 9 December 2016 according to the following programme:
·      8 December at 2 PM: impact of the EU-Tunisia Free Trade Agreement on Tunisian agriculture;
·      9 December at 9 PM: evaluation of the import system for cereals;
·      9 December at 11.30 PM: review of the agricultural subsidy system ​
A collaborative study will be carried out on each of the themes to analyse the situation and the issues related to the problem identified and to make operational recommendations in order to support the Tunisian decision-makers in the formulation of new strategic agricultural and rural programs.
ENPARD has been designed to support the EU’s Southern Neighbourhood countries in their agricultural and rural development. The initiative aims to support the formulation and implementation of renewed public policies in order to meet the challenges of food security, diversification of rural economies and governance in agriculture and management of rural areas.
