Last October, the entire Invest Palestine team met in Santiago de Chile to be part of the great meeting of Palestinians in Latin America, TAQALID. This successful festival held at the Club Palestino of Santiago, had the participation of families and delegations from various countries in the region, as well as the presence of renowned Palestinian authorities.
An event that brought together about 10 thousand people of Palestinian origin and in which we could actively participate with a presentation in the economic block of this great meeting. In the section “Examples of initiatives and cases in Palestine”, our Legal Director Marcelo Marzouka and Nicola Stefan, our Managing Partner, presented the investment environment in Palestine, investment and financing opportunities, and favorable economic policies, among others themes.
This great meeting also included the intervention of Basem Hishmeh, a well-known Palestinian businessman based in the United States, who, through the “American Ramallah Federation”, leads donations and promotes the development of children and children’s art in Palestine. Also, Naim Jadue unveiled the “Seed Fund” project, which seeks to join the efforts of different Chilean businessmen to invest in profitable companies in Palestine.
Undoubtedly, a historic encounter that strengthened the ties between Palestinians in the diaspora of all Latin America and originated important bridges of collaboration with Palestinian authorities. We are waiting for the next TAQALID to be held in Lima, Peru during 2019.
