Deputy Foreign Minister Kolaja Inaugurates New Czech-Tunisian Business Council


Deputy Foreign Minister Václav Kolaja and Tunisian Ambassador Mohamed Sélim Hammami attended an inauguration ceremony to mark the formation of a new Czech-Tunisian Business Council on October 6, 2016 in the Czernin Palace. The event took place in the presence of members of the Czech and Tunisian business community who signed the founding memorandum.

The official inauguration of the joint Business Council marks the culmination of a two-years collaboration between the Czech Embassy in Tunis and the Tunisian Embassy in Prague. Both countries expect to take advantage of further economic and trade cooperation that will arise from the council’s activities. The Czech Republic intends to pass on its engineering and technological know-how to the Maghreb region while Tunisia hopes to find an improved access for its goods to markets in wider Central Europe.
Both Deputy Foreign Minister Kolaja and Ambassador Hammami expressed their full support of the Council's activities as a foundation for building an even stronger economic and trade relationship between the Czech Republic and Tunisia, with annual trade volume currently standing at 3 billion Czech crowns.
Tunisian members of the Council were represented at the ceremony by CONECT and led by its Vice President Adnen Bouassida. CONECT is the second largest Tunisian association of small and medium-size businesses, counting over 3000 members.
