Tunisia co-operating with Japan and Canada in the transport sector
16 March 2010
Last week Tunisia and Japan signed a loan agreement for an amount of 47 million Dollars for an electrification project for the Tunis-Borj Cedria railway line.
The aim is to increase the frequency and capacity of trains in order to meet the growing demand as well as reducing the emission of pollutants into the atmosphere in the areas crossed by the railway.
This bilateral co-operation in the transport sector follows on from an agreement signed at the beginning of March with Canada.
This involves a partnership in the air transport sector. Thanks to this agreement, Canada and Tunisia will be able to provide regular air services on the territory of the partner country, with immediate effect.
