(TAP) -- In light of Tunisian-Finnish cooperation, Finnish Minister of Environment, Energy and Housing Kimmo Tiilikainen stressed the need for Tunisia to develop a complementary study to the valorisation and development project of sebkha Sijoumi and to provide the institutional and financial framework for the implementation of this project as soon as possible.
These recommendations were presented during a meeting between the Finnish Minister and Minister of Equipment, Housing and Spatial Planning Noureddine Selmi, who visited Finland from March 19 to March 21 2019, according to a statement issued by the Ministry of Equipment.
Selmi emphasised, during the meeting, the importance of the Tunisian-Finnish cooperation in financing for the promotion of Sebkha Sijoumi within the framework of the public-private partnership (PPP).
The Tunisian government launched a programme to promote this sebkha since 2015, and one of the specialised consultancies has completed a specific study in this field, according to data from the Ministry of Equipment.
The project aims to eradicate pollution in the sebkha, to enhance its banks and to create spaces for public facilities and recreational areas as well as jobs in the western region of the capital.
Selmi met during his stay in Finland with the Minister of Transport and Telecommunications, the Deputy Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs with whom he discussed means to carry out the infrastructure projects and setting up trade in the field of building smart cities and the use of new technologies in urbanisation.
