Doing Business with the U.S.A.
“Though our bilateral friendship has existed for over 200 years, the events of December 2010 - January 2011 leading to the Tunisian Revolution have given the relationship between the United States and Tunisia an even greater impetus. Now more than ever, the United States stands with the people and Government of Tunisia as they chart a course towards greater political inclusiveness, socio-economic development and responsible participation in the international community. "
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Tunisian Foreign Minister Mohammed Mouldi Kefi in New York, October 2011
