The Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey (TOBB) President M. Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu attended the General Assembly of Umat Customs and Tourism Inc. held in İpsala.​

TOBB President Hisarcıklıoğlu reminded that they established the UMAT in 2001 with a capital of 8.5 million liras together with the Chambers and Commodity Exchanges in Thrace to modernize the İpsala Border Gate, and said that İpsala is one of the most modern gates of the country today.

Stating that the success they achieved in İpsala was exemplary and that the other gates paved the way for modernization, Hisarcıklıoğlu said that the vehicle and passenger transit times accelerated 4 times at the modernized border gates. TOBB President said, “Thanks to these new crossings, Turkey has jumped a class in logistics. All this was done without spending a single penny from the budget of our state. All this was done by the presidents of the Chamber and the Commodity Exchange coming together. The first step of these works was taken by the Presidents of the Thrace Chamber-Commodity Exchange.

In the past, they were saying what does the Chamber-Commodity Exchange do? Those days are gone. This is how Chambers and Commodity Exchanges invest in the future of Turkey. It gives to the state, it gives to its members.”
