"Italy and Tunisia continue to cooperate to overcome this difficult moment together.
Italy, through the Cassa Depositi e Prestiti, paid 50 million euros (about 157 million dinars) as aid credit to the Tunisian Central Bank.
This sum is intended to support Tunisian companies and can be used to respond to the socio-economic impact of the Coronavirus pandemic in Tunisia, supporting the measures implemented by the Tunisian government.
"It is a first step, hand in hand, to face the COVID19 emergency."
