Tunisia: gov't rejects project, general strike in Tataouine

23 April, 11:50

(ANSAmed) - TUNIS, APRIL 23 - The Tunisian government's decision not to proceed with an industrial project in the Tataouine area has led civil society, parties and associations in the region to call a general strike tomorrow. The decision came after Industry and Trade Minister Mohamed Lamine Chakhari said that the government had rejected a project providing for the construction in Tataouine of a gas pipeline and a gas treatment plant since a cost analysis showed that the expenditure required was too high. These costs, said a government official, would be reduced by 700 million dinars (about 350 million euros) if the gas pipeline were to go directly from the Sahara to Gabes instead of going through Tataouine.
