TUNIS - China is willing to fund investment projects in Tunisia and Tunisia would offer better facilities for Chinese investors, Tunisian state-run press agency TAP reported late Thursday, quoting visiting Chinese Deputy Commerce Minister Fu Ziying.

Fu, who is leading a delegation of Chinese businessmen and banking sector representatives for a four-day work visit in Tunis, met with the Tunisian Minister of Commerce and Tourism Mehdi Houas Thursday.

The two officials discussed the financing within the framework of China-Africa strategic partnership mechanism, projects including a luxury tourism complex, and a free exchange industrial zone for the manufacturing of household electric appliances destined to the European market.

Fu handed Tunisia an official invitation to take part in the Arab-Chinese cooperation forum due to be held in China in June, 2011.

Beijing set up the China-Africa strategic partnership mechanism in 2006, providing a number of credit lines for the benefit of 49 African countries.
