Media from a government perspective: Tunisian-German dialogue

Press officers from Tunisian ministries, public authorities, parliament and anti-corruption agency recently visited Berlin with DW Akademie to learn more about government communication.

Tunisian government press officers were in Berlin to discuss experiences with their German counterparts. The Tunisian guests said that their parliament was active on social media and wanted to know whether this applied to the German Bundestag as well. They were also curious to know why WhatsApp was so appealing for political communication. Both sides spent an afternoon responding to each other's questions.

During their five-day visit, the press officers also met with the Tunisian ambassador to Germany and attended the German Federal Press Conference.
