Businessmen from Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Mauritania and Libya will meet in Nouakchott by the end of January to look into joint business opportunities and discuss ways of enhancing partnership in various sectors.
The event is organized by the Mauritanian National Employers’ Union (UNPM). It will be attended by members of the Union of Maghreban Employers, namely the General Confederation of Enterprises of Morocco (CGEM), the Tunisian Union of Industry, Commerce & Handicraft (UTICA), the Algerian National Confederation of Employers (CNPA) and the Libyan Employers’ Council, in addition to the UNPM.
This gathering will be an opportunity to foster cooperation between Maghreb employers’ unions and review investment opportunities in the region, said head of the Mauritanian employers’ union Zein El Abidine Ould Cheikh Ahmed at a meeting held Thursday in Nouakchott with the ambassadors of Maghreban countries.
The meeting focused on investment opportunities in Mauritania, the efforts made to improve the business climate in the Maghreb, ways to explore the untapped business opportunities in the region and the important role of the Maghreb employers’ unions for the economic and social development of the region.
The Union of Maghreban Employers was set in 2006 in Rabat.
