The Tunisian Aerospace Association Industries Group (GITAS) and the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ) recently inked a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to provide a framework for cooperation, facilitate and increase collaboration in fields of joint interest including strategic projects, reads a GITAS press release issued Thursday.
These strategic projects provide notably for the support of GITAS and aerospace nautical companies in the training and implementation of a social and environmental responsibility approach.
This approach will focus on the documentation and modeling of the carbon footprint, the drawing up of a photovoltaic guide for aerospace and automotive industries in Tunisia and a second guide on the integrity and fight against corruption in Tunisia, in addition to a study on special industrial waste (SIW).
The agreement seeks to strengthen the Tunisian aerospace ecosystem by establishing a better competitiveness and generating jobs in this sector.
This partnership falls under the “Job Partnerships and Support for Medium Enterprises in Tunisia” project, which is a part of the special “Training and Employment” initiative, commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and implemented y GIZ Tunisia.
