Meeting with Bursa Commodity Exchange (BTB) Members at the Bursa Meat and Fish Institute Facilities in Bursa, TOBB President M. Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu drew attention to the importance of commodity exchanges for Turkey’s economy.​

Hisarcıklıoğlu said, “Although first encountered in history here, commodity exchanges are an obscure concept for us. The first in Aizanoi, Kütahya, the people of this land practiced the equivalent of commodity exchange.”


TOBB President Hisarcıklıoğlu stated that without commodity exchanges, producers and farmers would not be able to market their goods at realistic prices, saying, “Today, the most important role of the exchange is to differentiate between the quality of products, determining prices in accordance with quality. This benefits production and industry. It allows consumers to attain healthy and proper food. In this regard, we have a commodity exchange which provides service on par with any in the world, the Bursa Commodity Exchange. The residents of Bursa, its tradespeople, industrialists and manufacturers can be proud of it.”
