5th February 2019

The Malta Chamber hosted the third Malta-Tunisia Business Forum in 14 months.

Welcoming H.E. Mr Beji Caid Essebsi, the Head of State of the Republic of Tunisia, to the Chamber on Tuesday, Malta Chamber President Frank V. Farrugia said that the Business Forum, the third in a span of fourteen months, was another clear testimony of the commitment to consolidate the healthy relationship between Malta and Tunisia, and to provide tangible opportunities for the respective business communities.

The Business Forum which was hosted by the Malta Chamber, formed part of a State Visit to Malta by the President of Tunisia.

“Our bilateral ties give us an incentive to engage and explore deeper reciprocal commercial cooperation in manufacturing, logistics, aviation, maritime and several other sectors. Such conviction derives from our history of strong collaboration in Mediterranean affairs and regional cooperation. Improving our trade relations will go a long way in achieving a healthier environment and economic prosperity in the region” said Frank V. Farrugia.

“Our Chamber makes it a point to promote the necessary policy changes in order for Malta to remain competitive on the international business and investment scene” Mr Farrugia concluded.
