Tunisia has become the first country in the Southern neighbourhood to join the EU’s Creative Europe programme, after the Assembly of the Representatives of the People last week ratified the Agreement for the country’s accession.

Accession enables Tunisian cultural and audio-visual operators to participate fully in Creative Europe’s Culture sub-programme, and partially in the MEDIA sub-programme (participation limited to training, film festivals, film education and market access activities).

Tunisia now becomes the first country in the Southern Neighborhood to join this programme, which brings together 35 other countries, and has a budget of €1.46 billion for the period 2014-2020.

Creative Europe is the EU programme supporting cultural diversity and the competitiveness of the European cultural and creative sectors, and foresees the participation of countries covered by the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP).
