Mohamed Saleh Tekaya, Tunisian Ambassador to the United States

The Tunisian ambassador to the US, Mohamed Salah Tekaya, will be participating in a roadshow to promote investment in Tunisia from the 13th to the 17th of February in three different American cities: Chicago, Atlanta and Houston.

The event, co-organized by Tunisian American Young Professionals (TAYP) and Bilateral US Arab Chamber of Commerce (BUSACC) aims at presenting Tunisia to American local officials, investors and corporations.

“The trip will include courtesy meetings between American local business leaders and the Tunisian diaspora in the United States,” stated Mohamed Ali Malouch, co-founder and president of TAYP.

United States that aims at fostering economic relationships and investments between the two countries, will participate in the event. Some of the members of this organization will be accompanying Ambassador Tekaya during his trip.

BUSACC is a business development organization created in 1997, and aims at initiating and cultivating collaborative relationships between the US, the Middle East, and North Africa to produce social, educational, and economic development. Founding Director Aida Araissi, who is of Tunisian descent, has made important contributions to the implementation of the project.

Mohamed Ali Malouch expressed that the roadshow will consist of business briefings in which Tunisian professionals will discuss the business environment in Tunisia.

“We all know that Tunisia is not that stable for the time being, so we are going to highlight the other advantages of investing in Tunisia,” explained Malouch.

Malouch stated that the Tunisian speakers will promote Tunisia as a viable location for investment using three strong fundamentals: the country’s infrastructure, the educated population, and the advanced status of women.

The outcomes of the Tunisian uprising, which led to the collapse of dictatorship, will also play a key role in persuading potential American investors that Tunisia will uphold the fundamentals of  transparency and the rule of law.

Malouch expressed that it is Tunisia’s history that proves that this state of instability won’t last.
