Tunisian-Canadian meeting on female entrepreneurship and women’s role in business world

Female entrepreneurship and women’s role in the authorities and the business world were debated during a meeting held Wednesday in Tunis between Canadian and Tunisian businesswomen.

Placed under the theme: Learn further about Tunisia’s needs in terms of female promotion and entrepreneurship, the event seeks to promote and make the most of the Quebec know-how in matters of female entrepreneurship, notably those of organisations offering support services.

It also aims to help create partnerships between Quebec and Tunisian enterprises and publicise the Quebec Business women’s Network that plays a key role in promoting female entrepreneurship in Quebec, said Deputy Premier, Minister responsible for Small and Medium Enterprises, Regulatory Streamlining and Regional Economic Development and Minister responsible for the Status of Women Lise Theriault.

The meeting will pave the way for successful collaborations between Tunisia and Quebec in trade and female entrepreneurship, she estimated in her address during the meeting.

To further foster economic and co-operation ties binding Tunisia and Quebec, we rely notably on the long-term development of promising partnerships between dynamic enterprises led by exceptional women from both countries, she pointed out.

According to her, female entrepreneurship is a vital reality that helps increase women’s economic empowerment and advance towards gender equality.

We should exert the necessary efforts to ensure a business environment conducive to their development, she asserted, estimating that a woman who leads an organisation or an enterprise should no longer be regarded as an exception but as the normality that reflects the values of our contemporary societies.

In a statement to the media at the end of the meeting, President of the Tunisian Confederation of Industry, Trade and Handicrafts (UTICA) Wided Bouchamaoui pointed out the importance of this meeting that had helped this Canadian economic and diplomatic mission to better learn about Tunisia’s needs regarding female entrepreneurship and the challenges facing Tunisian women on the path of creating or developing their enterprises.

The training and coaching aspects of businesswomen were also discussed by participants in this meeting which offered the opportunity for Tunisian businesswomen to present their products and services, she said, adding that, at the confederation’s level, every effort is made to expand and diversify our partnership relations and exchanges with other countries.

The meeting was organised by the Canadian Embassy in collaboration with UTICA and the National Chamber of Women Entrepreneurs.
