A Valuable Experience.

Dear Colleague,

I wanted to reach out to you personally to inform you that I am no
longer heading the General Directorate of International Cooperation at
he Tunisian Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research.
While I am sad to leave behind valued colleagues and friends around
the world, I have found the challenges of being the Director General
of International cooperation a deeply rewarding one.

The last four years in general, and the last two post revolution years
in particular have been quite stimulating. Indeed, this on going
critical transition to democracy phase has been a window of
opportunities for Tunisia since most of our partners showed renewed
interest despite the great difficulties and socio political
instabilities. I am happy to report, thanks to your insight and
support, that much has been accomplished in face of these obstacles,
and several novel and mutually beneficial cooperation projects were

While I hope that you will continue cooperating with Tunisia in
general and the Ministry in particular, I wish you the utmost success
in your projects, and look forward to maintaining contact with you.
