A Message From The Chairman


With all the turmoil surrounding us, the only weapon left to support our defense to survive remains productivity, despite our budgetary discipline out of order in those circumstances.

With a low productivity, we would be carried away by the tide into instability, insecurity, with no future vision.

After the government resignation on October 29th, we are in a political deadlock worsening the economic and financial crisis.

We should recognize that we are living into a world with no understanding, democracy having turned down liberty, with no respect to governance, political conflicts, corruption leading our country to bankruptcy.

We should recognize that we are in the heart of the storm between East and West.

Since I started business in 1963, Tamer Frères has been overwhelmingly engaged with respect to different points of views.
