Alongside the South African-Tunisian investment seminar, one on one meetings were organised in agriculture, agro-processing, building, construction, chemical and allied industries. More than 100 companies attended the business matching session. The seminar was followed by site visits to GROUPE MABROUK, one of the biggest Tunisian Holding Company operating in the banking, agro-processing, supermarkets, and telecommunication sectors.

The following day, the business delegation travelled to Sfax, Tunisia’s second industrial and economic hub, where they interacted with business women and men from the region.

Ambassador Losi-Tuti, in one of the interviews she gave to a media outlet, said “this delegation is not a hit and miss. It is the outcome of the willpower by the South African Mission in Tunis and the Government of South Africa to give impetus to our trade relations. We are creating the momentum for business to thrive both ways”.
