Tunisian Council probes opportunities in UAE

UAE, May 30, 2018

The growing economic cooperation between the UAE and Tunisia and the attractive opportunities available in Dubai for Tunisian investors and entrepreneurs were among the topics of discussion during a recent talk hosted by the Tunisian Business Council – Dubai and Northern Emirates.

The Tunisian Business Council – Dubai and Northern Emirates was established in 2010 to promote the interests of the Tunisian business community and facilitate closer bilateral business ties between Tunisia and the UAE.

The event saw attendance of prominent UAE-based Tunisian entrepreneurs, which included: Daousser Chennoufi, CEO and principal architect of Draw Link Group (DLG); and Dr Karim Fekih, founder, The Clinic, said a statement from the council.

The event was organised as part of the council’s wider efforts to facilitate knowledge-sharing among Tunisian entrepreneurs and identify effective ways to capitalise on business opportunities in the UAE through an active professional and social events calendar, it said.

Tracing his entrepreneurial journey during the course of the two-hour-long discussion titled ‘Entrepreneurship Talk’, which was held at The Oberoi Hotel in Business Bay, Dubai, earlier this month, Daousser Chennoufi shared interesting insights and anecdotes on the challenges he faced in steering DLG on the growth path and how he overcame those challenges to build one of Dubai’s best-known success stories in the interior design space, it added.

Bringing over two decades of excellence in architecture, interior design and fit-out, Chennoufi is considered one of the flag-bearers of Tunisian entrepreneurship in the UAE, and under his able stewardship, Draw Link Group has achieved sustained business growth and professional repute over last 10 years, with a steadily expanding global presence that spans Tunisia, Greece, China, and Belarus, besides the UAE.

The UAE and Tunisia share a flourishing bilateral trade and economic relationship, and non-oil trade exchange between the two countries exceeded $415 million in 2016, marking a 7 per cent increase from 2015.

Furthermore, Dubai has long been the destination of choice for Tunisian entrepreneurs looking to establish their business in the region, the city serving as a hub from which to target and expand into other Middle East and Africa markets, it added. – TradeArabia News Service
