Speaking at İstanbul Fashion Connection and Fashion Fair, TİM Chairman İsmail Gülle said, “In January, we set records in both our general and sectoral exports. We have big goals for the end of the year. We aim for 23 billion dollars in Ready-to-Wear and 250 billion dollars in our total export. I believe that in the new period, Türkiye will rise with export; export with the designs of our fashion designers.”
Turkish Exporters Assembly (TİM), operating to increase the worldwide awareness of Turkish export products and sectors, cooperated with BBC World News. BBC World News has produced three documentary productions on Food&Agriculture, Textiles&Jewellery, and Innovation&Technology. Türkiyes export products are introduced through films to the BBC's nearly 1 billion viewers on 4 continents.
Informing exporters about global challenges and opportunities, TİM hosted Prof. Dr. İbrahim Kalın, Presidential Spokesman and Chief Advisor to the President of the Republic of Türkiye, at TİM Foreign Trade Complex. Making a presentation titled "Geopolitical Challenges and Opportunities towards the 100th Year of Republic", Kalın said, “It is of great importance to establish the balance between being domestic and national and integrating into the world. The golden ratio is the main element that provides balance. Türkiye has established this golden ratio and balance between east and west, between local-nationality and globalism, between tradition and modernization. With the gold ratio, we will continue to develop our understanding of politics and trade. In this sense, we can say that our Republic will enter its 100th year as one of the most powerful and respected countries in the world. The foundations of our Republic offer us such an opportunity.”
