(TAP) - Minister of Foreign Affairs Khemaies Jhinaoui chaired a meeting at the headquarters of the Tunisian Consulate General in Marseille on the sidelines of his participation in the Summit of the two shores, held on June 23 and 24 in Marseille.

The meeting focused on consular action and the improvement of services provided to the Tunisian community in France. It was attended by the Tunisian ambassador in Paris and heads of consular missions accredited in France.

The meeting also discussed the upcoming elections. It was decided to do everything possible to facilitate the work of the Independent High Authority for the Elections (ISIE) with its two sections in Paris and Marseille in order to ensure the smooth running of this electoral event.

The Minister stressed the need to work to improve consular services and strengthen the contribution mechanisms of the Tunisian expatriates in France to investment, development and national savings efforts.

Jhinaoui announced that next July, as part of the work of the Annual Conference of Heads of Diplomatic and Consular Missions, a working meeting will be held with the CEOs of banks to achieve these objectives.

Besides, the Minister inaugurated on Tuesday the new office of the Tunisian Consulate in Nîmes in the presence of Didier Lauga, Prefect of the Gard.

This new consular office, attached to the Consulate General of Tunisia in Marseille, is part of the Tunisian diplomacy's efforts to bring together the consular and social services of Tunisians residing in Nîmes, in the Gard and also in the departments of the Occitanie region.

According to the site of the Préfecture du Gard, this department has about one thousand Tunisians. In total, nearly 12,000 Tunisians living in Occitania will benefit from the proximity of the new services of the consular office, located at 13 rue Bourdaloue, in Nîmes.
