Saad Bin Nasser Al-Hamidi told al-sharq news media that he handed out the invitation for an official visit to Qatar early next month at a meeting he held with the Prime Minister in tunis Tuesday.
The meeting discussed prospects for cooperation and the future of relations between the two countries.
The two officials also discussed the possibility of strengthening Qatari investments in Tunisia and addressed the issue of new projects.
Qatar is leading foreign investor in the North African country.
Early last month Mechichi held a telephone conversation with Qatari counterpart. Cheikh Khaled said his country is committed to bolstering cooperation relations with the North African country in various domains.
He also indicated that Doha is willing to tap into the Tunisian expertise and manpower that has proved its efficiency and excellence in Qatar, as the country gears up to host FIFA World Cup2022.
Mechichi’s future visit to Qatar followed that of President Kais Saied in November last year.
