The Arab British Chamber of Commerce, in association with The Embassy of Tunisia in UK, invite you to join our forthcoming “Tunisia-UK Trade and Investment e-Forum” to be held on 22 October 2020 from 10:30am B.S.T.

This Forum will feature officials from both countries including a keynote address by H.E. Mr. Ali Kooli, Tunisian Minister of Economy, Finance and Investment Promotion, and representatives from key institutions as well as from the private sector.

This webinar builds on the success of the “Tunisia-UK Trade and Investment Forum” held in London since 2018 and will give UK businesses unique insights into the investment and trade opportunities in Tunisia.

The event comes at a time when both countries are seeking to strengthen bilateral relations with the UK-Tunisia Association Agreement, due to take effect on 1 January 2021, ensuring continuity in trade and opening up new prospects for doing business.

The discussion will be followed by a Q&A session.

This event is supported by the Department of International Trade

Join us for what will be a timely and informative e-Forum.
