The Embassy of Tunisia hosted a lavish reception to celebrate the 63rd Tunisian Independence Day, here at a local hotel. A number of foreign diplomats, dignitaries, government officials and others graced the occasion. Ambassador of Tunisia to Pakistan M Adel Elarbi and his spouse welcomed the guests. Federal Minister for National Food Security Sahibzada Muhammad Mehboob Sultan was the chief guest on the occasion. A cake cutting ceremony was also held on the occasion.
In his message on the day, Adel Elarbi said Tunisia commemorates the 63rd anniversary of Independence on March 20th, 2019. It is a glorious anniversary to commemorate the struggle of Tunisians for their freedom and dignity. Since the independence, Tunisia has achieved remarkable accomplishments in several sectors particularly in the health and education fields. This policy is attributed to the wise vision pursued by many Tunisian leaders including the leader Habib Bourgiba, the founding father of the Republic of Tunisia.
Tunisia has also granted much importance to women rights and gender equality within the Tunisian society through the laws enacted in this framework such as the Personal Status Code that guarantees women rights. Therefore, after the Tunisian Revolution on January 14, 2011, the country adopted a democratic transition aimed at reinforcing the democratic values, enhancing human rights, good governance, sustainable development and comprehensive security in all aspects of life.
