Creation of the Crowe Horwath African Francophone Group

The partners of more than 20 firms members of Crowe Horwath International from 11 different countries namely England, France, Libya, Tunisia, Mauritania, Morocco, Algeria, Cameroon, Senegal, Côte d'Ivoire and Mali met in Tunis on 12 and 13 October to celebrate the creation of a Francophone Crowe Horwath sub-group and Zahaf & Associés' membership of the Crowe Horwath network. They now operate under the same brand with the firm of Ben Arbia (Horwath ACF). 

A press conference was held Thursday, October 19 to explain the purpose of this partnership and announce the creation of the new group of Crowe Horwath Africa French-speaking. 

In fact, the partnership of the two firms Zahaf and Ben Arbia aims to launch an international expansion strategy and strengthen Tunisia's position as a hub for the Africa Francophone zone, to provide clients with the quality of services they offer, a powerful and integrated international network and especially to support Tunisian companies that want to invest abroad and especially in Africa.

Mr Noureddine Ben Arbia will act as coordinator of the new group of Crowe Horwath Africa French-speaking until the next meeting, which will decide on the structure of its management. Its mission is to ensure the continuity of communications within the members of the group for the realization of the decisions taken, the collection of the proposals and the preparation for the next meeting to be held on the sidelines of the Africa and the Middle East meeting on February 2018 in Dubai.

A Memorandum of Understanding for a privileged partnership was signed with the Tunisian African Business Council (TABC), allowing TABC members to benefit from the reception, monitoring and support services of Crowe Horwath members, to facilitate the carrying out of business in the countries of these members.
