‘‘We have dedicated Saturday 26th of June to Libya under the title “Tunisian-Libyan Forum”, and this is a project to revive the transit corridor in Libya – because it was the most important gateway to Africa.”, President of the Tunisian-African Business Council (TABC) Anis Jaziri told Tunisian media outlet Radio Cap FM today.

Al-Jaziri also stressed that, through this forum, a strategic paper will be presented to make Libya and Tunisia ‘‘the gateway to Africa’’ and to attract European and Asian investment.
“Despite the logistical obstacles, we are making great efforts to bring Tunisia to the African market,” he added.
