Murad to lead business delegation to Tunisia on Monday

By Petra - Feb 13,2016 - Last updated at Feb 13,2016

AMMAN — Amman Chamber of Commerce (ACC) President Issa Murad is scheduled to head a delegation to conduct a business visit to Tunisia on Monday. 

The five-day visit organised by the ACC is a continuation to the Jordanian-Tunisian Higher Committee meetings held at the end of 2015 in Amman, and will include a Jordanian-Tunisian business forum.

The delegation, which includes more than 40 businesspeople representing economic sectors, is scheduled to hold bilateral meetings and field visits to the most important Tunisian economic institutions to review economic opportunities and be introduced to fields of possible commercial cooperation. 

Moreover, the delegation will discuss bilateral cooperation between the private sectors in both countries to serve mutual interests, Murad said in an ACC statement released on Saturday. 

He stressed the importance of transitioning the Jordanian-Tunisian economic and commercial relations to a whole new level of partnership and cooperation through intensifying delegation visits. 

Murad also stressed that Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi's visit to Jordan in October 2015 gave the Jordanian private sector a strong push to go to Tunisia and look for new markets to make up for the loss of regular ones. 


He said the private sector looks forward to have Tunisia as the Kingdom's gate to the European and African markets.
