At the ceremony, Minister of Industry Neila Gongi emphasised the potential for improvement in Tunisia through the dissemination of Kaizen.

Resident Representative of the JICA office in Tunisia UENO Shuhei highlighted that the second edition of the Tunisian Kaizen Awards, which took place after the completion of the 'Quality and Productivity Improvement Project' in December 2021, 'attests to the continuity of the dynamics of disseminating the Kaizen concept in Tunisia.'

According to JICA, the Kaizen concept provides a methodical approach to improvement that leads to cost reduction, enhanced quality and productivity, and shorter delivery times.

It is worth noting that Tunisia was the first African country where JICA introduced the Kaizen approach in 2006.
