(TAP) – The 33rd Business Days kicked off on Friday in Sousse governorate under chairmanship of Prime Minister Youssef Chahed.

The two-day event is organised at the initiative of the Arab Institute of Business Managers (IACE) under the theme: “Enterprise and Break-up Reforms.”

This edition includes three sessions; the first will focus on “the exchange regulations and monetary policy,” the second on the theme “Tax reform: Resources and pressure” and will offer the occasion to synthesise proposals for solutions concerted in a comprehensive vision that can be subject to a national pact of competitiveness as in several countries.

The third and last session will discuss the “Reform of the Labour code: Productivity and flexicurity” theme. A debate between social partners to propose reforms that will help provide productivity gains and maintain social stability.

The event is attended by Tunisian and foreign personalities such as Vice President of the European Investment Bank (EIB) Emma Navarro, Secretary General of the Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT) Noureddine Tabboubi, President of the Tunisian Confederation of Industry, Trade and Handicrafts (UTICA) Samir Majoul and several economic actors and national and foreign business leaders.

IACE new President Taieb Bayahi said the kick-off ceremony, that the choice of this edition’s theme is part of strengthening the approach of reforms aimed to favour economic progress, reach a growth rate exceeding 2.5% and reduce inflation.

Despite the fragility of the current situation, it is still possible to overcome the difficulties and mitigate risks facing economic enterprises, he estimated.

The official pointed out that the IACE has chosen to discuss the reform issue to draw the attention of economic actors and decision-makers to the importance to break up with the former development model that had shown its limits.
