An event being held Thursday at the PEI Convention Centre will feature the inspiring story of a Syrian family.
Tareq Hadhad will be the keynote speaker at Advancing Island Connections 2017.
He’ll tell the story of his family being forced to flee Syria, eventually settling in Antigonish where they re-launched their family chocolate business. Peace by Chocolate has seen incredible success.
Advancing Island Connections aims to connect business leaders with immigrant entrepreneurs and is presented by the Greater Charlottetown Area Chamber of Commerce, Island Advance and PEI Connectors.
