Chad: Itinerant Economic Mission in Mali, Niger, Chad and Gabon

Tunis — An itinerant multi-sectoral economic mission will be organised in four African countries (Mali, Niger, Chad and Gabon) from June 20 to 27, 2014.

The mission, led by Caretaker President Moncef Marzouki, will be organised in partnership with professional structures and business support agencies, CEPEX, UTICA, CONECT, confederation of small and medium industries of Tunisia (UPMI) and the chambers of commerce and industry of Tunis, centre and Sfax.

"The event is part of strengthening the historical bonds and the relations of friendship and co-operation with Sub-Saharan African countries," the Export Promotion Centre (CEPEX) said in a press release.

The mission programme includes information meetings on the economic and trade potentials between Tunisia and these countries and professional and individual contacts for companies interested in partnership and investment with African Sub-Saharan countries.

It involves, in particular, the sectors of building and public works, architecture and engineering services, finance, insurance, environment services, water and energy, pharmaceutical, mechanical and electric industries, food industries and ICT services.

"This mission, which has both a diplomatic and economic dimension, will help explore opportunities available to Tunisian and African companies and possibilities to contribute to investment and development projects launched in these countries," noted CEPEX.
