Istanbul Steel and Non-Steel Metal Exporters Union (İDDMİB) Chairman Tahsin Öztiryaki explains, "Our union came up with this idea and we ended up sharing it with TİM. Later, the Ministry of Economy joined on. Now we are about to collaborate with alibaba.com, one of the biggest international trade portals with 430 million members. We obtained a link from them. Through this link, foreign buyers interested in purchasing products will be redirected to Buy from Turkey, where they will be able to access information on 45,000 Turkish exporters."
20% CONTRIBUTION ON THE WAY
Öztiryaki mentioned that they had the opportunity to meet with high-level administrators from alibaba.com during their stay in Hong Kong for a kitchen appliances fair.
"The link for Buy from Turkey that will be provided on Alibaba. Com will provide a great opportunity for us to promote ourselves. In addition, alibaba.com directors plan to introduce us to the CEO's of multinational purchasing companies in Hong Kong. We will then invite them to Turkey, will arrange one on one meetings and will sell products," states Öztiryaki. Also mentioning that meetings are currently ongoing regarding government assistance for member firms on the website to receive a certain amount of government aid, Öztiryaki expressed that through this collaboration, they hope to have contributed up to at least 20 percent to the year-end's exports.
Turkey races behind China in house wares
Tahsin Öztiryaki states that Turkey has reached a significant position in international trade and that kitchen appliances are one of the rare sectors that do not contribute to the current deficit. "Turkey has now left Italy in their wake and has become second in this sector to China."
Headed to Maraş for incentives
Öztiryaki goes on to state that they are now at the finishing stages of the efforts they initiated prior to the incentives program and states, "We have chosen Kahramanmaraş as our location for kitchenware production. What is most important is that firms act together and realize significant manufacturing projects."
