Dear, besides the invitation letter from your company, you need to provide an Invitation Confirmation Letter. This needs to be obtained through the company at the local Foreign Affairs Office or Bureau of Commerce.

Mohamed, I cannot find useful information on the website of the embassy in Tunisia. However, based on my experience, it's possible to get it from there. The application usually takes four working days. If you are in a rush, you can apply for the urgent type upon the officer's approval.

In addtion to the documents you mentioned, you should also submit the filled application form and a copy of the passport. Maybe you will also be required to submit an invitation letter from duly authorized unit (can be obtained with the help of the Chinese company).
