Tripoli, 17 June 2013:
Libya and Tunisia have signed an agreement to regulate the number of Tunisian . . .[restrict]workers in Libya. It will operate using an electronic link between the Libyan Ministry of Labour and the Tunisian National Employment Agency.
The agreement was signed yesterday by the Undersecretary of Ministry of Labour and Rehabiliation for Work, Abdurrazak Altamtam, and the General Director of Tunisia’s National Employment Agency, Mustafa Ouider.
Tunisia will also open a branch of the National Agency for Employment in Tripoli. Under the agreement, the agency will also organise training sessions for Libyans to help them find work. The aim is that at least 20 percent of jobs being found by the agency will go to Libyans, the rest to Tunisian immigrant workers. [/restrict]
