Distinguished Guests & visitors,
Ladies & Gentlemen,
Brothers, Sisters, & Colleagues from Africa and beyond,
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Union of African Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Agriculture, and Professions’ online portal where professionals of all trades and cultures can access our resources to meet their needs and objectives.
It is by all means, an honour to be part of an organization that puts our bright and promising Africa at the forefront of its agenda for economic growth and prosperity. I am fully confident of the continent’s offering to the world in all fields, and more confident that Africa can play a leading role in tackling the global economic challenges of today.
We have witnessed many African Countries drive their economies towards higher growth rates and hereby commend the prominent role played by the chambers of commerce and industry of member States, whose members represent the vanguards of progress and prosperity in their communities.
This website is the first of many ambitious milestones for which we must all put our combined strength and resources to achieve and maintain a lasting platform for success for the future of Africa and its economies.
I cannot but express my thanks and gratitude to all distinguished gentlemen and employees of our member chambers, to all visitors and contributors, and to all stakeholders for their tireless efforts in realizing our goals for a more prosperous and powerful Africa.
On behalf of the Union of African Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Agriculture and Professions, we look forward to supporting your commercial success further and wish you ongoing prosperity and progress.
Ahmed El Wakil
Chairman of the Union of African Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Agriculture, and Professions
