The “Tunisia JOBS” programme of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Confederation of Tunisian Citizen Enterprises (CONECT) signed a partnership agreement on Tuesday, in Tunis.
The agreement was inked by CONECT president Tarak Cherif and head of the Tunisia Jobs programme Danilo Cruz-De Paula.
The aim of this agreement is to develop small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), to create jobs by establishing equitable economic growth and by empowering private sector companies.
Established in June 2018, “Tunisia JOBS” is a five-year activity to support SMEs and to create sustainable employment for Tunisians throughout the country.
The project delivers targeted firm-level assistance to businesses to accelerate growth and create jobs.
Additionally, JOBS improves the employability and skills of Tunisian job-seekers based on demand-driven enhancements of Tunisia’s vocational training system.
