TUNIS - Tunisia and China signed on Friday three agreements to boost commercial cooperation between the two countries.

The agreements were signed at the fifth edition of the forum "Tunisia-China: A Partnership for the Future" hosted by the Arab Institute for Business Leaders (IACE) in the capital Tunis.

The agreements involve a mega-project to build a commercial complex worth $65 million in Tunisia, which covers an area of 200,000 square meters.

According to IACE President Ahmed Bouzguenda, the long-awaited agreements benefit from China's Belt and Road Initiative, which aims to build a trade and infrastructure network connecting Asia with Europe and Africa along ancient trade routes.

Tunisian senior officials and representatives from a dozen of Chinese multinational enterprises and banks attended the forum.
