The programme of retraining and continous training geared towards laid off tourism employees was carried out after trade associations and the Training Agency in Tourism Trades (French: AFMT) inked a relevant agreement.

Funding is secured exceptionally by the Development Fund for Industrial Competitiveness (French: FODEC). A premium of 300 dinars at the end of the training will be borne by the State budget.
