Ghoul announced that a project to create a tourist maritime line between the two countries was under consideration to encourage tourism to both Algeria and Tunisia, adding that the facilitation would be introduced at border crossings, especially on matters related to health and safety services.
Other matters which were broached included the strengthening of land and sea transportation, boosting co-operation between tourism agencies in the two countries and promoting tourism investment, he said.
On Saturday, the Tunisian Head of government, Habib Essid, had emphasized the importance of reinforcing the Algerian-Tunisian partnership and co-operation, notably in the field of tourism.
In a media statement issued on the occasion of his visit to the 16th International Tourism and Travel Fair (SITEV) in Algiers, Habib Essid underlined the need for “boosting the co-operation between the two countries, notably in terms of tourism”.
He indicated that about one million Algerian tourists visited Tunisia every year and that Tunisia needed to improve the quality of services to meet the tourists’ requirements.
