The ITC will support the industry in its efforts to improve supply sources, increase value addition, and export diversification through direct assistance to businesses.

The Minister of Trade and Handicrafts, Tunisia, Nejla Harrouch said that the project focuses on diversifying markets to increase market share of Tunisian companies, to support companies in their efforts to move in the chain sector value and promote innovation, especially for the technical textiles sectors.

The executive director of ITC, Arancha González said that the Tunisian textile has a real potential to contribute to economic growth and provide added value that extends beyond the borders of Tunisia.

She added that this project will also address the national priorities of developing business and job creation in the interior regions of the country and employing new graduates and women in SMEs. (GK)
