The Abuja Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) has partnered Tunisian business community to boost regional trade to boast regional trade. Speaking at a business forum between the two partners yesterday in Abuja, the president of ACCI , Prince Adetokunbo Kayode, reiterated the commitment of the ACCI to ensure that the abundant opportunities in the continent were harnessed for the full benefits of the business community. “The Nigeria-Tunisia business forum offers another platform for strengthening of trade relations between our two friendly nations which will also go a long way in boosting regional commercial ties among African countries. As we move forward toward stronger economic relationships, I want to invite and encourage the Tunisian companies to seize the highly lucrative opportunities for investment in Nigeria in areas like integrated animal husbandry agriculture, industrial parks, hotels and tourism development and particularly the Abuja International Trade and Convention Centre,” he said.
Buttressing his point, Kayode pointed out that when the memorandum of understanding that has been signed begins to materialise, significant progress would have been made. “We would continue to open doors of opportunities for you by officially informing you about our activities and other business people in this country who would want to do business with you in areas of your strength such as agriculture, automobile, manufacturing, education, hospitality among other. In no distant future, we hope to establish aviation link between you and Abuja,” he added. On his part, the vice president of Tunisian Union of Industry, Trade and Handcrafts (UTICA), Mr. Hichem Elloumi , emphasized the delegation has come and now gotten first-hand information on the great opportunities and good climate Nigeria is endowed with. He stressed that both countries have a lot to benefit from each other and called on the organised private sector in both countries to ensure that the relationship was sustained across the sectors both countries are interested in.
