On 13 May 2019, the Tunisian Minister of Finance and the U.S. Ambassador to Tunisia signed an agreement to improve international tax compliance and cooperation in the field of taxation, between Tunisia and the United States. The U.S. Ambassador pointed out that the signing is a further indication of the strength of the bilateral relationship and the increasing cooperation on economic issues between Tunisia and the United States. The United States is committed to promoting economic growth in Tunisia through their assistance programs. However, the governments are also working hard to increase trade and investment relations aimed at creating wealth and jobs in both countries, a subject that will be at the center of the second Joint Economic Commission meeting this June in Tunisia (Link).
