In his speech at the New Year’s Meeting, İsmail Gülle, President of the Turkish Exporters Assembly (TİM), said, “Hopefully, we will reach our target of ‘Turkey with Foreign Trade Surplus’ in the near future. I believe we will achieve this in 2022.”
The traditional “New Year Gathering” of the Economic Journalists Association (EGD) was held as a hybrid, hosted by TİM, with the main sponsorship of Başarsoft and BitTurk, and the contributions of Arzum and PAGEV.
Speaking at the meeting, TİM Chairman İsmail Gülle said, “With the opening of our economy in the 1980s, Turkey’s open growth model also triggered the rise of economic journalism. While Turkey’s macroeconomic dynamics show a private sector-oriented change, economic journalism is also one of the leading roles in the growing Turkish economy. It played the role of both announcing and promoting it. We have come to these days together for 30 years,” he said.
Emphasizing that the world is going through an extraordinary period, Gülle said, “We have not yet come close to the warm contact in the past years, but let’s not underestimate the point we have reached. We have come a long way. I hope we will completely get rid of this virus in the coming years and 2022 will be the last year.”
Emphasizing that despite everything, the export family made the good and happy news of this process, Gülle said, “Exports put a smile on our country’s face during this process. We announced records at the end of the month. Especially in the process of 2021 so far, we announced a record in 10 of 11 months. We also announced the record of 12 months again. We will announce it with the participation of our President. We are passing through historical periods. A note will be written in the history of humanity in 2020. 2021 has been a period with many beautiful topics for Turkey’s production, industry, exports and growth. As the export family, we are proud,” he said.
“TURKEY GROWING FOREIGN TRADE SURPLUS” TARGET
Gülle also talked about the new economy program announced by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and continued his words as follows:
“We are proud to be the main factor of the last announced economy program and to represent an institution on which the model prepared for the growth and development of this country is based. But most importantly, we are happy to give it back. Thank you for your contributions. Thanks to you, we had the opportunity to share the success stories in exports and reached a wide range of segments. When we took office, we increased our export family from 60 thousand to 100 thousand. Every month, approximately 1,500-2 thousand of our companies start exporting. We are also very pleased with this. “
Noting that the Service Exporters’ Association was established at the same time, Gülle said, “Hopefully, we will reach our goal of ‘Turkey with Foreign Trade Surplus’ in the near future together. “I believe we will achieve this in 2022,” he said.
