MUSIAD issued the press release in 10 languages for the Reform Action Group Meeting held with the participation of Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, Justice Minister Abdulhamit Gül, Treasury and Finance Minister Berat Albayrak and Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu. In the press release made via MUSIAD Europe Branches, support message was given for the EU integration process in English, French, Dutch, German, Romanian, Greek, Bosnian, Macedonian, Bulgarian and Turkish.

Stating in the press release that the EU was one the most important political and economical partners of Turkey, Kaan said “Especially with the decision of the EU Customs Union enacted in 1996, The Eu became both the largest trading partner and the biggest investor of Turkey. However; it is undeniable that many mechanisms working against Turkey in the Customs Union system have been preventing the existing economic relations from being brought up to higher levels. In this context, we consider the will to update the Customs Union and the visa exemption process, on which our Ministers attending the meeting lay emphasis, as an important step for the development of the relations between the two parties.

We will continue to support our government

Underlined that they, as MUSIAD, carried out activities in terms of the development of relations with the EU, Kaan said “We, as MUSIAD, undertake an important mission regarding development of the political and economical relations between Turkey and the EU with our agency network in the important centers of Europe, in particular Germany, Netherlands, England, France and Belgium, and conduct important studies with the “Trade Diplomacy” vision. In line with this understanding, we aim to increase bilateral relations with EU countries through our organizational network in Europe and to develop economic relations through cooperation agreements to be signed with the public institutions and organizations and CSOs. In this respect, we welcome the government's will to revive the EU membership process, and we are proud to announce that we will continue to support our government in developing relations as MUSIAD.”.
