Ennaceur-Antoine talk: Common will to develop Tunisian-Walloon parliamentary relations.
(TAP correspondent Hinda Dhibi) -- The possibilities provided to strengthen relations between the Parliament of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation and Tunisia were at the centre of the talk, Thursday in Brussels, of Speaker of the House of People's Representatives (HPR) Mohamed Ennaceur with President of the Walloon Parliament Andre Antoine.
Mohamed Ennaceur told TAP after the talk, held at the end of the Tunisian parliamentary week in Brussels, that the encounter turned on ways and means to simplify the registration of young Tunisians in Belgian francophones universities and training institutions since the management of universities and youth affairs in Belgium is the responsibility of the Walloon Parliament.
Both sides also discussed the possibility of organising workshops and other meetings between MPs of French-speaking parliaments and Tunisian MPs in order to deepen the debate and exchange views on two fundamental themes, namely "decentralisation and local governance" and "the financial and administrative autonomy of the HPR".
For his part, Andre Antoine reaffirmed the will of the Walloon region to support Tunisia and its people, underlining the need to implement the cooperation agreement between Tunisia and Wallonia in 2015, through the organisation of meetings and conferences between Tunisian MPs and Francophone MPs.
"The Walloon Parliament will put its experience in parliamentary action at the disposal of the Tunisian parliament, particularly in the areas of decentralisation and the financial and administrative autonomy of parliament, in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme" he said.
