International Trade Organizations
We recently participated in a meeting for the Turkish American Business Association(TABA) on March 30th, in Izmir, Turkey. During the meeting, leadership was exchanged from the previous board to the new board members in their various leadership roles. The new team has already begun working and making plans for what they aim to accomplish during their term. Temel Gaskets has been involved with the organization in the past and this year, our Director of Business Development, Tunc Kip, has increased his role as a U.S. liaison for TABA.
TABA, part of the AmCham network, aims to promote growing communication and investment between the U.S. and Turkey. The organization provides a setting for sharing advice and fostering the smooth exchange of investments and business between the two countries. In order to accomplish this, TABA works to minimize barriers into entering the American market by working cooperatively with American commerce groups, partnering with NGOs, conducting market research, and organizing conferences.
The Turkish branch of American Chamber of Commerce(AmCham) functions to bridge business interactions between the U.S. and Turkey, by supporting economic development in Turkey using bilateral trade and direct foreign investments. The organization aims to make the Turkish business environment stronger and increase its global influence. U.S. Commercial Service aids these efforts by helping U.S. companies become acclimated to engaging in commerce with international markets. The organization conducts trade missions, hosts webinars, and provides detailed annual reports about exports, job growth, and international sales.
