Tunisia: EU allocates €25 million to culture and public administration twinning programmes
December 2, 2015
The EU has allocated a total of €25 million to support the culture sector and the reform of public administration in Tunisia.
The support programme to the culture sector, funded with €6 million, aims at supporting the strategy of the Ministry of culture and heritage and supporting actors in the culture sector to promote events, actions and initiatives. It will be implemented by the European Union National Institutes for Culture Network (EUNIC).
Another two agreements have been signed funding two new phases of the support programme to the Association Agreement with a total of €18.6 million. This will support twinning activities between Tunisian and European administrations with the aim of infusing new working methods and modernising Tunisia’s public administration.
“With this assistance package, the EU reaffirms its support to Tunisia, which amounts to €187 million in 2015,” said Head of EU Delegation in Tunisia Laura Baeza. (EU Neighbourhood Info)
