Dear members of the Tunisian-British Chamber of Commerce,
It has been almost a year since our new Board was honoured to be elected by you and since I have been privileged to chair the Tunisian British Chamber of Commerce.
Thanks to your great support and your active participation, you provided the members of the Board with the needed motivation and challenges to work hard to contribute to create the right environment to enhance business information and opportunities for our members, and to promote Tunisian-British commercial and investment relations.
2016 was a challenging year but also a year we engaged in many activities and events, and a year we saw the number of our members increasing by 20%.
Since the last General Assembly we were proud and energised to contribute to so many initiatives and events to serve you and serve the Tunisian-British Business community, among them:
– Creation of sectoral commissions
– Collaboration with the Tunis Chamber of Commerce
– Collaboration with UTICA
– Collaboration and MOU with the BRCP
– Engagement with the UK Trade Envoy
– Tea-party networking events
– Conference on Investment in Tunis
– Tunisia2020 roadshow in London
– Conference on energy
– Conference on the new Finance law
However, I am convinced that we can do more, more for our members, more for Tunisia, more for the UK, more for the promising Tunisian-British relations… and we can only do it with you and your support.
I wish you all a wonderful year 2017!
Mehdi Ben Abdalla
