The Spanish delegation participating in the 10th Euro-Mediterranean Investment and Partnership Facility (FEMIP) meeting expressed will to invest in Tunisia in the capital risk field, said Mr. Philippe de Fontaine Vive, Vice-President of the European Investment Bank (EIB).
During a press briefing held Thursday in conjunction with this meeting, the European official also said that the EIB financial go-betweens operating on the Tunisian territory will be, henceforth, autonomous, in their decision making for granting or not micro-credits to the applicants of this service.
“This will help ease the necessary procedures when granting credits and save the beneficiaries’ time,” he explained.
“In addition to the financial tools,” he went on saying, “proximity actions must be developed to target citizens and opt for popularization of the micro-credit use, by young entrepreneurs in particular.”
Secretary of State in charge of International Cooperation Alaya Bettaieb commended the emergence of a new public-private partnership in the infrastructure field, underlining that an important number of international companies voiced will to take part in the achievement of infrastructure projects in Tunisia.
The 10th FEMIP Conference is organized at the initiative of the EIB in close collaboration with the Investment and International Cooperation Ministry.
