02.02.2023 / ANKARA

Mersin Commodity Exchange Chairman Abdullah Özdemir and Assembly Speaker Münir Şen, together with their delegation, visited the Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Türkiye (TOBB) President M. Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu at his office.​

At the reception, TOBB President Hisarcıklıoğlu wished success for the new term efforts and conveyed his good wishes.

Abdullah Özdemir, in his statement after the visit, gave the following opinions: “We have held the elections of our Commodity Exchange in Mersin. I would like to state that I am happy to be re-elected and to provide the necessary service to our members. After being elected, we came to visit Mr. President together with the board of directors, our council members and delegates. We had a very productive meeting. He is a person with whom we have been working for years, with whom we have explained our problems and who has found solutions. Allah bless him. I have been working with him since he became President in 2001. The Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Türkiye is represented in 81 provinces and 160 districts with 365 chambers and commodity exchanges. This is a great area of representation. It is also Türkiye's largest non-governmental organization.We have about 1.5 million members. Even if our members had a family union of 3 people. If we multiply by 4 we get 6 million. 6 million if at least 4 people work in each enterprise. If we multiply this by nuclear family 3, the nuclear family is 18 million. If we add 18 to 6, we are the soldiers of an organization that appeals to an audience of 24-30 million. Mr. President has been serving this organization very successfully for many years. TOBB in 2001 is very different from TOBB now. This is the case both in Türkiye and in the international arena. Mr. President does not only represent us in Türkiye, he also represents us in the world. This swells our chest and pushes TOBB's value even higher. I am with Mr. Rifat in this term as well. I support Mr. Rifat and prefer to work with him and support him as TOBB President.”
