Tunisian Ambassador to the Kingdom of Bahrain H.E. Mr. Mohamed Bin Youssef was welcomed during a visit to the Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company (GPIC). He was received by Company President Dr. Abdulrahman Jawahery, members of the Executive Management and Deputy Chairman of the Labour Union.

Dr. Jawahery conveyed to the Ambassador the greetings of the Chairman and members of the Board of Directors and said the visit would contribute to strengthening cooperation with Tunisian petrochemical companies and would consolidate bilateral relations between Bahrain and Tunisia.

Dr. Jawahery briefed the Ambassador on the Company's operations and its corporate philosophy, which enabled it to win several international awards and enhance GPIC’s reputation in international markets. He also spoke about the Company’s programs and achievements in terms of production, safety, marketing and environmental conservation. Dr. Jawahery and the Ambassador reviewed relations with Tunisian fertiliser companies and praised the way they had developed over the years.

The Ambassador met several Tunisian women, who are in Bahrain as part of a joint programme supervised by the Institute of Public Administration to train future leaders.

He also toured the complex and went to the Ammonia, Methanol and Urea plants, closely looking at steps in place in the fields of safety, environment and occupational health. He saw the environmental and charitable projects like the Charity Fish Farm, the Medicinal Herbs Garden, the Vegetable Garden and the Bird Sanctuary, besides planting a palm tree to commemorate his visit.

The Ambassador said he was happy at the visit to GPIC, which is a symbol of the GCC countries’ cooperation in the petrochemical industry. He said he took the opportunity to get to know about the Company's operations and its achievements. He applauded Arab cooperation in the field of training and human development and congratulated the Tunisian women trainees for having been given the opportunity to train in Bahrain.
