Right after gaining its independence in 1956 Tunisia started to invest in human resources and education in order to develop a skilled workforce. This is one of the reasons Tunisia was recently ranked the most competitive country in Africa and the Arab world. "In this particular field I have made many looks to Korea with big admiration," the ambassador said in his opening speech.Exchange between the two countries found its recent peak when Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Science and Technology Kim Woo-Sik, visited Tunisia to co-chair the first Technological and Scientific Joint Commission last November. "This visit constitutes a turning point in the cooperation between the two countries in the areas of science and technology," the ambassador explained.The ambassador emphasized in his speech the great progress the diplomatic relations between the two countries made in the last 40 years. He based this development on the similarities between Korea and Tunisia, in front of all in means of spreading and promoting prosperity for their people and peace worldwide."Wishing further progress and prosperity for our two people I hope for fruitful and lasting cooperation between our two frankly countries," he finished his speech.
