Parliamentary State Secretary Kramme welcomes delegation from Tunisia

On 26 November, Parliamentary State Secretary Anette Kramme welcomed a delegation from UTICA, a Tunisian employers' association, at the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs. The talks focused on Germany’s system of employment promotion. Since it plans to establish an unemployment insurance fund in Tunisia, the Tunisian side wanted to learn more about Germany’s provisions for funding from the unemployment insurance system. In this context, State Secretary Kramme stressed how important it was to promote skills development and further training in order to boost workers’ employability and she offered to stay in touch on this question.

The visit at the BMAS took place as part of a study trip on social insurance in Germany, which was organised by the German-Tunisian Chamber of Commerce (AHK) in Tunis. The Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs and the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development support Tunisia in its efforts to strengthen social dialogue and promote exchange formats such as this programme, including through the provision of development cooperation funds.
