MoU between two countries aimed at boosting renewable energy.
Japan and Tunisia have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) aimed at boosting co-operation in the field of renewable energy, the Ansamed website reported on Tuesday.
The accord is expected to be implemented through a joint energy project in Borj Cedria and include the creation of an eco-village and an international centre promoting renewable energy.
The US$73 million project foresees the construction of 5,000 solar-powered houses by 2016, as well as two solar energy plants.
