The visiting minister is in India to co-chair the 12th India-Tunisia Joint Commission Meeting along with External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj. The two foreign ministers are also expected to deepen bilateral ties and economic cooperation. A wide-range of issues including areas of common interest are likely to be discussed.

The economic cooperation between the two countries has been deepening with Indian investments in various sectors, including fertilizers, automobile, pharma and textiles.

The Joint Commission Meeting will also enable both countries to do a comprehensive review of bilateral ties. Both countries will also sign agreements and MoUs.

India has traditionally been a close and friend of Tunisia.
