May 14, 2016

TEHRAN- Tunisian Minister of Energy and Mines Mongi Marzouk will confer construction of a power plant and an oil refinery in his country as well as completion of Tunisia’s electricity network with three Iranian ministers.

As Tasnim news agency reported on Friday, Marzuk would have meetings with Iranian Minister of Oil Bijan Namdar Zanganeh, Minister of Industry Mohammadreza Nematzadeh, and his counterpart Hamid Chitchian.

Almost a month ago, the official in charge of foreign relations of Iran-Tunisia Joint Chamber of Commerce Afes Nour ad-Din said that Letters of Credits (LCs) would be opened between the two countries soon.

As IRNA reported on April 17, Isfahan Chamber of Commerce quoted him as saying that the LCs will be opened normally and businessmen of the two countries may use this financial capacity to develop economic cooperation.

Nour ad-Din who was talking to deputy head of Isfahan Chamber of Commerce Mustafa Ronasi and a group of economic activists said that normalization of banking relations is the most important tool to increase trade exchanges.

Iran opened its embassy in Tunis almost 60 years ago and this country has political, cultural and economic relations with Iran.
