The fifteenth session of the Association Council between the European Union and Tunisia was held in Brussels on 17 May 2019. This session of the Association Council highlighted the excellence of the privileged EU - Tunisia partnership, based on shared values and dynamic and diversified cooperation.

The Youth Partnership is still at the top of our common agenda. Our cooperation has opened up new opportunities for Tunisian youth, covering areas as diverse as education and training, mobility, employability, entrepreneurship and youth participation in community and political life. These measures for the benefit of young people are consolidated with the signing of the "EU4Youth" program, 60 million euros will be deployed for the economic, social and political inclusion of young Tunisians.

We confirmed that the pillars of our partnership were the consolidation of democracy, good governance, respect for human rights and freedoms, and strengthening the role of civil society.
