President of Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (ICCIMA) has called for establishment of a joint council of commerce between Iran and Tunisia in order to help boost trade between the two nations.

“Despite the great economic potential that exists between the two countries, the amount of economic exchanges is very limited,” Gholam Hossein Shafei said in a meeting with Tunisia Ambassador to Tehran Samir al-Mansar.

Referring to the cultural similarities between Iran and Tunisia and the history of political and economic relations between the two countries, Shafei said that the strategic geographical location of the two countries plays an important role in the development of Iran-Tunisia relations.

According to the ICCIMA president, technical and engineering services, small and medium size industries, oil and gas and petrochemicals could be the most important areas of cooperation between Iran and Tunisia which need “further exchange of information”.

Shafei said establishment of thejoint council of commerce would be a preliminary phase for setting up the Iran-Tunisia joint chamber of commerce.

The Tunisian ambassador who was visiting the ICCIMA headquarters said that despite the high level of political and historical relations between the two nations, the bilateral economic relations are not satisfactory.

Given the geographical location of Tunisia, our country could be a gateway for Iranian goods and services to Africa, Samir al-Mansar said.

He further stressed the need to strengthen ties between the Iranian and Tunisian chambers of commerce.
