Twenty six Maltese business representatives from nineteen Malta based companies participated in a successful two-day trade mission organized by the Malta Chamber of Commerce Enterprise and Industry together with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Tunis.
The trade mission coincided with the State visit of H.E. President of Malta Marie Louise Coleiro Preca Tunisia, which marked the 50th anniversary of the start of bilateral relations between the two countries.
The President of Malta was accompanied by Foreign Affairs Minister Carmelo Abela and Economy Minister Chris Cardona.
The programme included a well-attended high-level Maltese-Tunisian Business Forum which was also addressed by the President of Malta and Mr. Youssef Chahed, Chief of Tunisian Government.
Chamber of Commerce Presidents Mr. Frank V Farrugia and Mr. M. Mounir Mouakhar also addressed the forum, together with Mme Wided Bouchamaoui, President of the Tunisian Union of Industry, Trade and Crafts.
This event which registered approximately one hundred business-to-business meetings was facilitated through Enterprise Europe Network (EEN), a network helping companies thrive internationally, within which both Maltese and Tunisian Chambers operate.
