EU grants 110 mn euros to aid Tunisian economy

The European Union announced Tuesday 110 million euros ($160 million) in aid aimed at boosting Tunisia’s economy as part of political support for its revolution early in the ‘Arab Spring.’

The money will support Tunisian government reforms intended to help less-developed inland regions, unemployed graduates and the poorest families, as well as revamping the economy’s services sector.
