Twinning project launched to help Tunisia strengthen its civil aviation
November 23, 2016
A new twinning project between Tunisia and France in the area of civil aviation was launched yesterday in Tunis. The twinning, funded by the EU with a budget of EUR 1.2 million, seeks to modernise and strengthen the Tunisia civil aviation.
This twinning will contribute to the restructuring of the civil aviation administration in Tunisia, the establishment of a governance in line with international practices, strengthening the safety and security of civil aviation, and improving the efficiency and performance of all sectors related to the aviation sector.
Some 20 French experts will be mobilised to provide Tunisian managers and technicians with the necessary know-how to strengthen and perfect their knowledge, ensure the convergence and approximation of regulatory texts with international requirements, ensure a high level of aviation safety and civil aviation security in accordance with international standards and to redefine together a new air transport organisation and strategy able to face the future challenges of a rapidly changing sector.
