Deputy Minister of Tourism, Tokozile Xasa, who was taking part in the proceedings of the World Tourism Organisation Conference, availed herself to attend together with her accompanying delegation.

On the Tunisian side, the event was attended by the 1st Deputy Speaker of the National Constituent Assembly, Mrs Meherzia Laabidi, the Minister of ICT, Mrs Mongi Marzouk, the Minister of Development and International Relations, Mr Lamine Doghri, the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Mrs Leila Bahria, and the Secretary of State for Industry, Mr Nidhal Ouerfelli.
Over two hundred guests including diplomats, businesspeople, tour operators and friends of South Africa graced this beautiful day with their presence.

In her welcoming remarks, Ambassador Losi-Tutu, highlighted the excellent relations that exists between South Africa and Tunisia and reiterated that South Africa has special relations with Tunisia that surpasses the 20 years of official diplomatic relations and it is based on these solid historical relations that Tunisia supported South Africa in its fight against oppression and discrimination.

“South Africa and its people stand ready to share with Tunisia the experiences of its democratic transition, constitution drafting and transitional justice. We are committed to helping Tunisians understand that a fellow African country went through what you are going through, and that many lessons were learnt along the way which may be of great assistance in ensuring that Tunisia has a peaceful transition and take its rightful place in the community of democracies on the African continent,” added the Ambassador. 

A South African Band and Traditional dancers based in Friguia theme park in Tunisia captivated the attendees with their traditional costumes and music.
