(TAP) - Ministers and experts, on Monday, shed light on several obstacles hindering social and economic development, including the absence of effective mechanisms to implement programmes and practical strategies for post-revolution Tunisia.

They stressed the need to look for efficient mechanisms to ensure the implementation of projects and promote economic and social development in Tunisia.

Speaking at the conference organised in Tunis by the Centre for Economic and Social Research and Studies (CERES), in partnership with the German foundation Hanns Seidel on “Tunisia by 2030”, Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research Slim Khalbous said the main handicap of all sectors and in all areas is not the absence of ideas, programmes or means, but rather the lack of efficient mechanisms capable of implementing all these projects.

“In Sidi Bouzid, both the project ideas and the funding are there, but nothing has changed, given the lack of efficient mechanisms,” he said.

“Change of governments also disturbs the continuity of the planned projects. It is essential to reform the Tunisian administration so that it meets the current social and economic requirements," he added.

Former finance minister Elyes Fakhfekh explained that the lack of a strategic vision to promote economic and social conditions is one major obstacle that blocks the general situation in the country.

He called to establish programmes and mechanisms to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the digital revolution, to create projects and increase job opportunities.
