(TAP) – Italian textile and clothing manufacturer Calzedonia plans to invest in Tunisia by launching, initially, two industrial units in the delegations of Zriba (Zaghouan) and Sahline (Monastir) with an employment capacity of 900 jobs, the Ministry of Economy and Planning said Thursday.

The ministry added that other units will be set up later.

Representative of the company Marco Carletto was received Thursday by Minister of Economy and Planning Samir Saied.

The Minister stressed the importance of Tunisian-Italian cooperation in all areas and this project in particular which will create additional jobs and boost economic activity in many regions and delegations, affirming the willingness of his department to accompany the Italian company in the installation of its units as soon as possible.

For his part, Marco Carletto said that the decision of the Board of Directors of the company to invest in Tunisia was made on the basis of comparative advantages of the country such as skilled labour and proximity to Europe.

The Calzedonia group employs about 40 thousand people worldwide and has more than 5,500 stores in 53 countries.
