Ambassador Rubinstein made his first official trip to Sfax. After calling on Governor Chaouat, Ambassador Rubinstein met with several members of Parliament, had lunch with members of the local American Chamber of Commerce and visited the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Sfax (CCI-Sfax). He then hosted a roundtable with members of several different civil society organizations, met with the Consular Warden for Sfax, and ended with a dinner with U.S. Government program alumni.
The Ambassador was impressed with the hard-working attitude and high hopes for the future that so many Sfaxians expressed to him, while also appreciating the chance to hear first-hand the challenges facing their city and region. Thank you to the people of Sfax for their hospitality and warm welcome!
