We set the 2013 priority agenda of CFT as supporting Turkish-British trade and cooperation development. At the 2013 Conservative Party Manchester Conference, which will be closely followed by both British and world press, we will organize a business reception with the theme of 'business and trade' on Monday, September 30, between 17.30 - 19.00, with the support of the Turkish Embassy, that will bring the Turkish and British business world together. Reception from Turkey to our various chambers of commerce, hotels and Exporters associations, representatives of various companies from the energy sector and the textile and apparel industry will participate. We also invited businessmen from different sectors from England to this meeting. This is why our participants from Turkey, both with British Ministers will also find the opportunity to meet and discuss business opportunities with British merchants. We hope that this reception will contribute greatly to the development of business relations between the two countries and to open new horizons.
Save the last 10 years Turkey has obvious economic and structural developments. Likewise, the railway and the studies in this field have shown significant improvements compared to previous periods. We as a group, rayder we see as the most important and valuable members of the institutions and persons representing the railway sector in Turkey. Therefore, we will be very happy to see you among us at the reception we will hold.
Our reception does not charge a fee for the participants, but in the UK political parties demand money from participants during their annual political conferences because they do not receive government support. In order to avoid a security problem, an online application must be submitted. When we receive a positive approach from you and learn the number of participants, I will help you with details for reference.
Details about our organization are presented below;
Our reception will be held under the roof of the annual British Conservative Party Conference. The British Cabinet and MPs, including Prime Minister Cameron, will attend the British Conservative Party conference as before. In addition, we expect the total number of participants to be approximately 12,000.
Our trade and business-themed reception will hold conferences and meetings where various topics from different sectors such as health, tourism, education, defense and automotive will be discussed and stands will be established. If they wish, Rayder members will be able to attend the meetings before our reception for free. In addition, the UK Finance Minister, George Osborne, will arrange a table where tables will be reserved in return for a certain amount of grants, and upon request from RAYDER members, we make the necessary applications for participation in the meal.
We invited Lord Green, the Minister responsible for Trade and Investments, who came to Turkey many times with delegations, as a speaker. We are waiting for an answer from him. kazanWe'll let you know when it does.
