Tunisia PM says government will pump $1.5 bln into state firms

TUNIS, Oct 18 (Reuters) - Tunisia government will pump $1.5 billion to state companies as part of first steps to reform them, Prime Minister Hichem Mechichi said on Sunday.

Most of the public firms have financial difficulties, and some are threatened with bankruptcy due to lack of financial resources. (Reporting By Tarek Amara; Editing by Daniel Wallis)
