In his press release regarding the March 8th World Women’s Day, TOBB President M. Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu said, “It is our greatest hope that the place of women in our social life to be elevated further and their successes contribute to the prosperity of society.”​

Stating that women have achieved great successes in society and the business world, Hisarcıklıoğlu said, “The role of women, the foundation of our families, in the business world of Turkey in its development cannot be overstated. It is evident what they are capable of when they are supported through affirmative action and by enabling them.


Our country, which aims to be among the top 10 economies of the world in 2023, needs the power of women to achieve this goal more than anything else.


As a nation, the great import we put on our women should never diminish, quite the opposite. We must achieve this together.


The significance of women, who we consider to be our social and political crowning glory, is evident throughout history as well as it surely is today.


We must appreciate this great significance and be sure to not squander the entrepreneurial spirit of our women who make up half of the population.”


Stating that women have achieved great successes in the business world and emphasizing the importance of women’s attention to detail, Hisarcıklıoğlu ended with, “Our women succeed in everything they put their minds to.


We watch with admiration the TOBB Woman Entrepreneurs Councils founded with this in mind and working successfully, which are pioneering the creation of policies for the development of the woman entrepreneur potential in terms of both quality and quantity and the proliferation of a culture of entrepreneurship among women.”
