A national seminar on the implication of non- government organizations (NGOs) in park management and environmental communication will be held in Tunis, February 10 and 11.
Placed under the patronage of Environment minister Faiza Kefi, the seminar is organized by the "Association des Amis du Belvedere" (AAB) and the Micro-Financing Program of the World Environment Fund (PMF/FEM), in partnership with the women and Environment Alliance at the National Union of 
Tunisian Women (UNEFT) and the United Nations' Information Centre (UNIC).

In addition to Environment Minister who will preside over the opening session, guest speakers at the seminar will include the resident representative of the united Nations Development-related issues including:

  • Biodviersity in Tunisia.

  • National parks in the country

  • The national program for urban parks.

  • ONGs' experiences with regard to park creation and management.

  • The national program for promoting environmental awareness and culture.

  • Environmental communication and ONGs' expectations.

How Could The incentive and Convention industry keep Apace Over 3,8 million people visited Tunisia last year. And by the turn of the century, the nation's tourism chiefs plan to welcome 5 million visitors. 

Besides, well over 20 international carriers now provide global access to the country's five major airports-many featuring stopover programs via, say, Egypt, Italy, or France. Tunisia is, indeed, a country of truly breathtaking landscapes. But, anyone involved in the convention and incentive travel industry knows only too well that, sand, golf and scenery are net enough to sustain a destination liked Tunisia in the universal arena, particularly as the competitions gets ever stiffer. In fact, today's swelling ranks of tourists are being joined by a healthy harvest of international convention delegates keen to sample Tunis's new generation business hospitality.

Anxiously undertaking a relentless quest for something completely different, event planners have deserved, all along the last decade, that a sophisticated infrastructure with modern transportation and communication systems, alluring shopping, switched-on tour companies and a highly-accomplished portfolio of accommodations, are inevitable for Tunisian hotel and travel professionals to develop a competitive incentive industry, because most major international convention planners (especially from western Europe and north America), who constantly express their devotion and love of the country, will not be back until most of its hotels and touristic regions have their own world-class convention centers. Key destinations 
should dedicate conference venues featuring satellite links, video projection, link to Internet, and a variety of business aids and technical requirements.
