PM Appoints Jewish Businessman As Tourism Minister — Leadership Newspaper


Tunisia has a news tourism minister following a reshuffle by Prime Minister Youssef Chad on Monday evening.

The Prime Minister hopes that the new faces will inject some much needed urgency into his government that has been slammed for failure to fix an economic crisis.
