OUR PARTNERS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT
The economic strength of an area it is not only its industrial and commercial dynamism but also its intellectual and scientific dynamism.
For a few years, the coming together of the SCCI and the University has not ceased increasing. Many institutions are even closely associated with the Chamber: the Higher Institute of the Technological Studies (enterprise zone) and the Higher School of Commerce, or very present in the life of the Chamber: the Faculty of Economic Sciences and Management (for training). The University is also associated in the huge Euro-Mediterranean projects. Together with the University of Sfax of the South, the SCCI also organizes UNIVEXPO: university production and applied research exhibition, intended to bring the industrial world closer to the academic world.
As for the national and regional organizations of promotion and economic development, the SCCI maintains permanent contacts with them in order to ensure a better effectiveness of its services for the companies: the CEPEX (Center of Exports Promotion), One-stop Shop (gathering the services of the CEPEX, the Agency of the Promotion of Industry, the customs, etc, for the creation of companies), the INNORPI (National Institute of Standardization and Patent Rights), and Customs authorities.
Within the framework of the creation of the Technopole of Sfax specialized in Communication and Information Technologies, the Sfax Chamber of Commerce and Industry took an active part in its implementation.
After coordinating the feasibility study undertaken together with the University and the financial assistance of the USAID, the SCCI contribute, since then, to its establishment in Sfax while sitting within the Follow-up Committee of Technopole and the Committee of Projects Selection.
