Four hundred and fifty businessmen, 250 Tunisians, 150 Turkish and 50 Libyans, will meet next January 12-13 in Hammamet, as part of the first Tunisian-Turkish-Libyan symposium held by the “Nama Tounes” (Tunisia development) association. Most of the companies that will take part in this event operate in mechanical, electrical and electronic industries, food industry, agriculture, building materials and basic infrastructure.
This event, the first held by the association since its creation in March 2011, seeks to encourage Tunisian and foreign sides to invest, particularly, in priority regions of Tunisia and create jobs with high added value. Mr. Najeh El Haj Eltayef, executive committee member of the association who was speaking at a news conference held on Tuesday in Tunis announced that a group of young promoters will present in this meeting 50 projects specialized in decoration, agriculture, wrought iron and bricks. According to its steering committee, the Nama association is a non-profit non-governmental organization seeking to support development action, particularly in disadvantaged regions and help young promoters find funding for their projects by establishing contacts with money lenders and credit institutions.
The association plans to organize, in the future, Tunisian-French and Tunisian-Italian meetings, in addition to establishing contacts with countries from South America, South-Eastern Asia and the Gulf to diversify partnership.
