UTICA defends only law-abiding business owners (Bouchamaoui)

President of the Tunisian Confederation of Industry, Trade and Handicrafts (UTICA) Wided Bouchamaoui, on Tuesday, reiterated her support to the government’s efforts to fight corruption.

The confederation only defends law-abiding business owners and rejects any demonisation and confusion between them and those who violate the law, she stressed.

During the periodic meeting of UTICA’s national council, Bouchamaoui commended the efforts made to tackle smuggling, parallel trade and illegal street vending, both in the capital and the country’s different regions.

The meeting provided an opportunity to review the economic and social situation in the country and the progress in renewing UTICA’s structures, ahead of the upcoming national congress to be held in January 2018.

Members of the national council reiterated the need to establish a business climate conducive to investment and to strengthen the foundations of social peace.

They further highlighted the difficulties facing companies in several sectors.

The council meets every six months and gathers members of the national executive board, presidents of local unions and sectoral federations and union chambers.
