President's Message

Welcome on the website of the Tunisian Business Council Dubai & Northern Emirates (“TBC”) designed to provide you with a comprehensive overview on who we are, what we wo and how we operate.

With more than 26,000 residents, the UAE based Tunisian community represents the 4th largest contingent of the Tunisian diaspora after France, Italy and Germany. However, what makes the UAE based Tunisian community substantially different from the rest of the diaspora is the high percentage of businesspersons, entrepreneurs, managers and top corporate executives among its ranks. Regrouping approximately 400 members and “friends” who attend the various events we organize, the TBC is the only authorized organization representing this community in the emirates of Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah. Thanks to our close cooperation with our sister organization of TBC Abu Dhabi, our action covers the entire UAE.

Beyond numbers and statistics, what really matters is the level of dedication and motivation of the people who, day-after-day, make the TBC a truly outstanding organization. Each of them is filled with a passion to serve the community.

First, the community of our members through the support, benefits and the different services offered to them by the TBC.

Second, the wider community of the UAE based Tunisian professionals (entrepreneurs and executives) as one of our most important roles is to represent such community with the highest standards in terms of efficiency, professionalism and integrity.

Third, the UAE business community in general as we are committed, along with TBC Abu Dhabi, to play our part in the vibrant economy of our host country.

TBC’s action aims be a catalyst of the longstanding friendship between the UAE and Tunisia: we are convinced that increasing bilateral investments, trades and cooperation is an important part of this equation.

Should you be (i) a Tunisian businessperson / executive in UAE or Tunisia or (ii) a non-Tunisian with an interest for Tunisia and/or its UAE based residents, do not hesitate to reach out to us.

I am honored to serve as President of the Tunisian Business Council Dubai & Northern Emirates, and on behalf of the Executive Board, I look forward to work with you.
