Tunisia wants to strengthen its cooperation with China in the ICT sector

(Ecofin Agency) - China is one of Africa's major technology partners. The Asian behemoth is also a pioneer of the latest-generation mobile technologies such as 5G and 6G.

On Tuesday, June 27, Tunisia and China signed a memorandum of understanding to enhance their cooperation in the field of information and communication technologies (ICT). The agreement was reached during an official visit by Nizar Ben Neji, Tunisian Minister of Communication Technologies, to the Middle Kingdom.

The memorandum covers various aspects, including legislative and legal issues, digital infrastructure, research and innovation, skills development, digital technology advancements, cybersecurity, digital economy, and exchange of expertise.

The signing of this agreement aligns with the Tunisian government's efforts to promote digital transformation. Last January, the National Telecommunications Authority of Tunisia (INTT) signed a similar agreement with the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC), USA's telecom watchdog.

The recent partnership with China should enable Tunisia to take advantage of the Asian giant's expertise and technological advancements, relative to ICT. This collaboration aims to boost the development of the ICT sector in this North African country and make it a cornerstone of its socio-economic progress.
