The Rambourg Foundation presence in the exhibition is part of its belief in the philanthropic mission that it has set as a motto since the early days of its creation, Shiran Ben Abderrazak Executive Director of the  Rambourg Foundation who is present in the exhibition told TunisianMonitoronline.

The foundation, he said, also believes in the potential of the Tunisian handicrafts, craftsmen and designers in the creation of purely Tunisian products commended by the Chinese visitors to the Rambourg Foundation stand in the Shangai exhibition.

The Rambourg Foundation which promotes Tunisian handicrafts participates in the first China International Import Expo (China International Import Expo CIIE), held from November 5 to 10, 2018, in Shanghai, China while taking the initiative to help some designers and craftsmen to participate in the global exhibition.

Our focus for next year after the Foundation signed an agreement with National Handicraft Office is Tunisian handicrafts mainly from the inland regions which are seeking support to showcase their handicraft product nationwide and worldwide, added Shiran Ben Abderrazek.

He indicated that as part of the first China International Import Expo ten Tunisian businessmen came by themselves with  Tunisian-Chinese Business Council and less than ten producers are also present in the event.

The Executive Director of the Rambourg Foundation said that the objective is really to represent Tunisian handicrafts in this fair highlighting the huge number of visitors to the Rambourg Foundation stand, who were delighted to see the Tunisian handicrafts creation.

In this connection, he revealed that the Rambourg foundation held talks with the Chinese importers who are interested in making partnerships with the Tunisian handicraft sector and establish contracts with the Tunisian designers and craftsmen underlining that there is a huge demand in the Tunisian handicrafts.

Besides, Shiran Ben Abderrazak pointed out the importance of the next year China International Import Expo calling on the Tunisian concerned authorities not to miss this global event because Tunisia has an enormous added value to book its presence in the fair and showcase its potential in the area of agri-food mainly olive oil, and handicrafts. He underlined the need to support the creative and innovative spirit among the Tunisian designers so as to attract the Chinese buyers.

Compared to other Arab and Maghreb countries, namely Morocco and Egypt, Tunisia’s participation did not meet the expectation of the visitors at this show, where some 3,600 exhibitors from more than 120 countries are present to display their products, the Executive Director of the Rambourg Foundation said.

He explained that the vice-president of the Tunisian-Chinese Business Council, Dhouha Mizouni Chtourou, exerted all efforts to establish a good participation of Tunisia to introduce this event to the 2018 programme of the Export Promotion Center (CEPEX).

On the other hand, the council ensured a representativeness of Tunisia in this show though timid, given the role it can play in promoting Tunisian exports to China and other foreign countries”, Shiran Ben Abderrazak said.
