OUR DUTIES TO REMOVE BARRIERS
Sometimes they ask what rooms-stock exchanges do? Rooms-Stock exchanges can not put money directly into the member's pocket. Our task is not to put money in their pocket, but to break down the barriers of making money. We are dedicated to break the chains on the foot of the private sector, to facilitate, to open roads. Because when this country's entrepreneur breaks the chains of his foot once, there is no job he cannot achieve and there is no target he cannot reach.
We served our members with the dues we collected from our members, we protected the interests of our members. We have modernized the land customs gates so that our members can export much easier. We organized a scheduled train so that our members could sell more goods to Europe. We do this just to win our room, we win only entrepreneurs, laborers also won in Turkey. We have overcome obstacles hand in hand, we went up to climb to the summit of Anatolia, Turkey rose, we all experience this honor.
We work with new goals every day with greater excitement. I would like to thank our Minister, who both supported these targets and supported the modernization of the Black Customs Gates from the beginning, in your presence. I would like to thank all of my Chamber-Commodity Exchanges and Chairman of the Board of Directors in GTI. These were made possible by your diligence, your leadership, and your commitment. We will accomplish much bigger things together. I congratulate all of our managers and employees on duty at GTI and all Land Customs for their hard work and sacrifice. They walked towards this goal step by step, and they made the dream come true with their efforts. New Halkalı Customs auspicious auspicious get to our entire community and Turkey.
