Cooperation between Tunisia and Turkey has been increasing with each passing day, in various sectors, including textiles, and this workshop serves as a proof of the same, he added.
The Tunisian Minister said, the manufacturing sector of the country is the main sector providing employment to majority of the people, and the TIKA project would help facilitate employment for the women in the country.
