(TAP)- The 8th session of the "zoom on regions" programme, organised by Tunis-Afrique-Presse news agency (TAP), in co-operation with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation (KAS), kicked off on November 11 in the Sidi Bouzid governorate and is due to last for a week.

At the opening of this fresh session, Director of TAP External Relations Department Chaouki Aloui said the last sessions of the “Zoom on Regions” experience have had positie impact, particularly in terms of supporting and diversifying the regional media product, highlighting the role of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in supporting this programme.

KAS Resident Representative Holger Dix said thanks to this programme a new dynamic has been introduced to the existing cooperation between TAP and his institution, particularly in the sense that the courses and field visits conducted so far as part of this experience have provided an opportunity to discover the country's inner regions and carry out reports that reflects the reality of these regions and their economic, social and cultural riches and specificities.

The TAP team were received by Governor of Sidi Bouzid Mohamed Sedki Bouaoun, who affirmed the regional authorities’ willingness to facilitate the team's mission during their stay in Sidi Bouzid.

The "Zoom on Regions" has covered so far six governorates: Sfax, Beja, Gafsa, Mahdia, Siliana and Tataouine and will continue in other governorates, favouring a proactive approach that is no longer limited to the coverage of hot events but also seeks to go further into the in-depth treatment of newsworthy issues focused on the concerns of the people nationwide.

The press work, which will be carried out by the TAP team and will be published on the Agency's website, will deal mainly with issues related to the limited exploitation of industrial areas in the region, the problems of drinking water and irrigation, follow-up projects in areas adjacent to the mountains, the problems of shortage in specialised medicine, the international land file in addition to stories on the lifestyle of residents in mountains and closed military areas, farmhand workers and the experiences of successful private projects in several productive activities in the region.
