To guide companies in a constantly changing local and global business environment. Chambers and Commodity Exchanges monitor the rights of, laws pertaining to and the interests of entrepreneurs at local, national and international levels. They also contribute to local development activities as strong opinion leaders, often taking up the role of leadership. Briefly, Chambers and Commodity Exchanges operate in many social areas, such as local development in addition to their business-oriented duties.”

- In the effort of better serving the members of the chambers and exchanges

Hisarcıklıoğlu stated that the ability of chambers and exchanges to fulfill their roles in the healthiest way is directly connected to their service capacity. As the Chamber and Exchange community, Hisarcıklıoğlu stated that they need to serve their members better, to represent their members more effectively and to be more sensitive to their environment. TOBB President and EUROCHAMBRES Vice President M. Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu stated that they need to improve their service capacities and range; improve the standard of service as well as being closer to their members. As long as they can do so, they can better serve their country, members and the chamber-exchange community.

Hisarcıklıoğlu pointed out efforts to further increase the value of the chamber and the commodity exchange, and said, “This has been our goal since 2001. We are working to make our Chambers and Commodity Exchanges service bases for companies in Turkey. Throughout this process, the European Union has provided us with support of around 16.5 million Euros. In addition to its own knowledge and experience at EUROCHAMBRES, Europe's largest business organization, it has helped us bring the experience of leading chamber systems from EU member countries to our country. On behalf of our business world, I would like to thank the European Union and EUROCHAMBRES, the latter of which I am proud to serve as Vice President. We started this process with Chamber Development Projects in 2001. This was followed by the Turkey-EU Chamber Forum and now Turkey-EU Business Dialogue project with which we continue to support our and chambers and exchanges. With these projects, in addition to providing support for our chamber/exchange service capacity, we contribute to Turkey's EU accession process. We help the business communities get to know each other more closely. We include our chambers and exchanges on platforms for dialogue between the EU and Turkey. From the east to the west, throughout our country, we show the EU vision. This most effective and increasingly stronger platform for dialogue between the EU and Turkey, under the leadership of our chambers and commodity exchanges, is driven by the business community. We know that we need more dialogue. Therefore, this project will zoom in on the real actors of our Turkey-EU integration we see as a very important project.
