Tunisia and Japan ink MoU with a focus on digital transformation

(Ecofin Agency) - To accelerate the implementation of its digital transformation program, Tunisia bets on cooperation. Already this year, the country has signed many cooperation memoranda with the US, China, Italy, and more.

Tunisia and Japan signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to reinforce their cooperation on the digital transformation front last Tuesday, October 10. The MoU was inked by Nizar Ben Neji (photo, left), Tunisia's Minister of Communication Technologies, and Taro Kono (photo, right), Japan's Minister of Digital Transition.

The deal, which was sealed in Japan, covers e-government, digital transition, experience sharing, data analysis, electronic payment, digital identity, cloud, artificial intelligence solutions...

It supports Tunisia’s commitment to digital transformation. Earlier this year, the Northern African country signed similar agreements with the US and China. Another was also signed with Italy to establish bilateral cooperation in the field of cybersecurity and digital trust services.

Commenting on the latest MoU, Nizar Ben Neji, the minister of communication technologies, wrote: "This memorandum also translates both countries’ commitment to bolstering and opening up cooperation between Tunisia and Japan and leveraging global best practices and existing opportunities in the fields of digital transformation and modern technologies to develop government services for citizens and institutions, promote innovation and entrepreneurship, and support sustainable development goals."
