Tunisian businessmen call for implementing trade agreements with African countries

Tunisian businessmen emphasised the need to implement trade agreements with African countries and foster mechanisms and cooperation agreements that prioritise Tunisian firms, in line with market requirements.

They also said, during their visit to Guinea on the occasion of the first Tunis-Conakry flight, agreements in health and higher education would be fruitful insofar as they would help attract 2,000 to 2,500 African students, President of the Tunisia-Africa Business Council Bassem Loukil Tuesday told TAP.

The Council, which includes 200 Tunisian businessmen, highlighted the importance of breaking down barriers blocking the flow of Tunisian goods, notably agrifood products, building materials and drugs, into African markets by means of lifting customs duties and introducing competitive prices to face up to the increasing competitiveness of China and Turkey.

The Tunisia-Africa Business Council and Grant Thornton Guinea, which provides tax and advisory services, Tuesday inked in Conakry a cooperation agreement to support Tunisian firms keen to invest in Guinea or increase their exports.

Under the terms of this agreement, the Tunisia-Africa Business Council will assist Guinean investors and provide them with needed investment data.

A delegation made up of Industry and Trade Minister Zied LaAdheri and Transport Minister Anis Ghedira was on board of this inaugural flight. The delegation also included representatives of the Higher Education and Scientific Research Ministry, the Tourism Ministry, Customs, the Civil Aviation and Airports Authority (OACA) and tour operators as well as more than 40 businessmen.
