Tunisia's minister of commerce Omar Al-Bahi praised the historical relations between Egypt and Tunisia, pointing out to the high level of coordination between the government and the leaders of the two countries.
In an interview with the Middle East News Agency in Tunisia, Al-Bahi added that the volume of trade exchange between the two countries has improved in the last year.
"We have raised some problems, such as facilitating the issuance of entry visas, as this would double the trade exchange between Egypt and Tunisia.
Regarding his participation in the meeting of the Social and Economic Council of the Arab League held in Cairo on February 8, Al-Bahi said that the meeting took important decisions, which are still in need for applying an appropriate mechanism to be implemented.
He added that, during the meeting, the Arab ministers reviewed the ways required for the implementation of the council and facilitating the trade exchange among the Arab countries within the framework of historical decisions taken by the Arab leader.
"The Arab countries have to enhance the mutual trade exchange among them as the current volume of real trade exchange is weak, he said.
He expressed his hope to see Arab common market, similar to the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), in addition to drawing up mechanisms and laws that facilitate this economic and trade exchange among the Arab countries”, He added.
