Tunisian Prime Minister Hicham El Mechichi has ended his visit to Libya and summed up his meetings as "fruitful."

El Mechichi told reporters at a news conference upon his arrival to Tunisia on Sunday that he agreed with Libya's Prime Minister Abdul-Hamid Dbeiba to promote Libyan investments in Tunisia by tackling difficulties and simplifying procedures for investors.

He also indicated that they would boost trade movement at Ras Al-Jadir border and work to rehabilitate the crossing point at all levels.

Prime Minister El Mechichi confirmed that his government had adopted several decisions to facilitate investment between the two countries, including alleviating security measures to enable easy movement of Libyans to Tunisia.

Tunisian Prime Minister on Saturday arrived in Libya at the head of a high-level delegation consisting of government officials, representatives of Tunisian organizations, businessmen, and investors to attend the Libyan-Tunisian exhibition in Tripoli.
