Nigeria and Tunisia are seeking to strengthen their trade relationships to promote growth in the areas of trade, economy and technology.
The two countries have had long-term relations but their trade volumes did not reflect the level of the relations.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, at several fora in Abuja, had stressed the need to strengthen the bilateral relations between Nigeria and Tunisia.
At a business forum preceding the Nigeria-Tunisia Joint Ministerial Commission in Abuja, Onyeama noted that Tunisia was making great strides on the global stage.
“In all categories Tunisia is showing itself to be a leading country in the world in ICT, medical and agriculture, among others, it has a made tremendous stride.
“That is why we are, particularly, happy in strengthening the bilateral relations between the two countries,” he said.
He said the Joint Ministerial Commission between Nigeria and Tunisia would identify various sectors in which the level of cooperation could be increased.
