Tunisia is seeking to bolster collaboration with China as part of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).
The issue was at the centre of a meeting between Premier Youssef Chahed and head of the International Department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), Song Tao.
Both sides are also likely to engage in further discussions aimed at encouraging a comprehensive Sino-Tunisia growth of relations.
Chahed also highlighted the significance of cooperation between the two countries, voicing anticipation for a stronger presence in BRI.
Tunisia attaches great importance to its relations with China, and looks forward to playing an active role in the construction of the BRI, said Chahed.
Song hailed the development of Sino-Tunisian relations and the strengthening of political mutual trust since the two countries established diplomatic ties 55 years ago.
Cooperation in various fields between the two countries has been moving forward under the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), said Song.
During his visit, Song also met with Khemaies Jhinaoui, Tunisian minister of foreign affairs, among other officials of Tunisia.
