Ghana delegation explores business in Turkey

IZMIR

A fifteen Ghanaian business delegation is in Izmir, Turkey, to participate in an international business summit dubbed, “Turkey-Midwest Africa Trade Bridge.”

The highly professional international business summit, organised by the Confederation of Businessmen and Industrialists of Turkey (TUSKON), targets importers and importer companies operating in the fields of construction, furniture, food, agriculture, textile and cosmetics.

The 15-member delegation is part of 100 selected companies from the Midwest African countries who have already been linked to the Turkish business community.

They are expected to move into business-to-business meetings immediately after the opening session today.

Participating countries are Turkey, Ghana, Nigeria, Burkina Faso and Niger. Ethiopia, which is not within the Midwest African countries, is expected to join as observer and as a way of signalling its interest in doing businesses with Turkey.

Briefing the Daily Graphic on arrival in Izmir, the Secretary General of the Ghana Turkey Co-operation and Development (TUDEC), Mr Huseyin Uysal, explained that about 30 leading Turkish manufacturers would mount an exhibition, while 300 were expected to meet with their African counterparts during the business-to-business segment of the summit.

He said the summit was a unique platform where the Ghanaian business community could meet and interact with reliable Turkish exporters, manufacturers, investors and traders.

Mr Uysal expressed the hope that the summit would generate interest among business communities in both countries.

He said since TUSKON was an umbrella organisation of seven business federations and 211 business associations, “such a platform offers a wide range of opportunities for the Ghanaian business community to take advantage of.”

TUSKON currently represents 55,000 business people and more than 140,000 companies. It is the largest business not-for-profit institution in Turkey.

Bank Asya shares skyrocket after trading resumes

The Islamic bank has been in the spotlight since Turkish media reported that state-owned companies and institutional depositors loyal to Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan had withdrawn TL 4 billion ($1.8 billion), or some 20 percent of the bank’s total deposits, because the bank’s founders include sympathizers of cleric Fethullah Gülen, a former-ally-turned-critic of Erdoğan.

Prime minister said during the fourth ordinary general meeting of the Turkish Confederation of Businessmen and Industrialists (TUSKON) in March of 2012:
“You are not backed by dark forces. You are not backed by the mafia, gangs, junta regimes. You are not backed by the bankers in Galata. You did not take advantage of the sources of the Treasury or public banks. You did not act according to an ideology. You did not surrender to the pressures and roadblocks. You only trusted in the people. Because you only relied on people, you are great and make this country great.”

Erdogan came to Tanzania, Mozambique and Madagascar believing that if he waved around the prospect of massive investment, the governments would shut down the Gulen schools and give marching orders to the Turkish nationals running them. It turned out at the African states quite like having well-resourced schools catering for the local elites and did not oblige.
