A Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry delegation recently attended a seminar entitled “Implantation in Dubai: A Platform opened to the Gulf and the Middle East Market” organised by the Sfax Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Tunisia.



The seminar was attended by Abdul Rahman Saif Al Ghurair chairman of the Dubai Chamber; Salem Issa Qattam Al Zaabi UAE Ambassador to the Republic of Tunisia; and Ridha Fourati president of the Sfax Chamber in the country’s Sfax governorate.



The delegation met Najla Moalla Harrouch Tunisian Minister of Commerce and Crafts and discussed new avenues to enhance economic cooperation between the two sides while taking their bilateral relations to the next level.



The objective of the seminar was to inform Tunisian investors about the lucrative investment environment of Dubai and the advantages associated with setting up businesses in the emirate. A presentation from the Dubai Chamber highlighted important investment sectors in the emirate and joint cooperation opportunities that exist between the UAE and Tunisia. In his keynote address Al Ghurair said that the meeting will contribute to building a stronger bilateral relationship between the UAE and Tunisia adding that the UAE offers an ideal platform for the growth and expansion of Tunisian companies into the region as well as into South-east Asian countries.



Al Ghurair further stressed that the Dubai Chamber is looking forward to enhance trade cooperation with Tunisia which currently ranks 94th on the list of Dubai’s trading partners as the emirate’s non-oil trade with the country reached Dh921 million last year. He also pointed out the presence of 203 Tunisian companies registered with the Dubai Chamber and operating in the emirate.



“We see Tunisian companies benefitting from Dubai’s extensive modern infrastructure and competitive tax-free working environment unconditional government support to overseas investors in light of its new strategy to shift to smart government services to keep pace with the growth and development in the world” Al Ghurair said.



The Dubai Chamber chairman also highlighted the investment opportunities available for Tunisian companies in the emirate’s key economic sectors including trade tourism financial and logistics services which he said are the major attractions for overseas investors wanting to invest in Dubai.



Al Ghurair called upon Tunisian companies particularly those from the sectors of trade agriculture and industry to set up base in Dubai which he said is an ideal hub for expansion in the region. He reiterated the Dubai Chamber’s commitment to provide all the facilities to Tunisian businesses to enhance their competitiveness in the region. The Dubai Chamber also had a meeting with Donald Kaberuka president of the African Development Bank which focused on the opportunities arising from Dubai’s hosting of the World Expo 2020. The delegation highlighted the economic potential of Dubai especially in the area of trade.
