ABSTRACT
The early December 2003 visit of the U.S. secretary of state Colin Powell reaped positive results for Tunisia. First, Tunis, Tunisia has been named the regional office headquarter for the U.S.' Middle East Partnership Initiative. This affirms the country's status in the premier league of U.S. regional allies. Tunisia's president Ben Ali's strong credentials in cracking down on terrorism are also attested to in Washington. There is also a suggestion that Powell may have mooted a free trade agreement with Tunisia, which would provide critical economic support for the political efforts that Ben Ali has pioneered.
