The Tunisian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Khemaies Jhinaoui In the opening speech, H.E Minister of Foreign Affairs emphasized the crucial role of the Honorary Consuls in reinforcing investment, economic partnership and cooperation between Tunisia and its member countries. He insisted that the Tunisian Government relies on the contribution of its Honorary Consuls Members for a successful International Conference on Investment and Economy that had taken place on 29-30th November 2016 encouraging a high-level participation during the Conference. In the same context, he reiterated the President’s invitation of the International Community, announced during the 71st ordinary Session of the United Nations General Assembly, to actively participate in the Conference in a way to prove its solidarity with Tunisia and to support its economy. He also urged them to advertise Tunisia as a safe destination and try to convince the governments of the International Community to lift the travel advice, highlighting the Tunisian commitment to ensure the safety of its visitors. He also recalled that, despite the success of the democratic transition, the adoption of a new progressive Constitution and the organization of free and fair elections, Tunisia is still undergoing seri- ous economic challenges that threaten its nascent democracy in a complex global context. He expressed his hope that the support of all the partnership countries and their efforts to fight terrorism would result in economic support in order to strengthen its stability and sustain democracy. His Excellency’s speech was followed by interactive debate where the Honorary Consuls expressed their comments and inquiries about the future plan of the Tunisian government to provide an attractive environment for foreign investment and the privileges and reforms recently introduced. • The Honorary Consuls at the conference Fotos: christian rössler, government of tunisia 36 | SOCIETY 2_2016
