Referring to the fact that all the economies in the east and west are in general growth, Hisarcıklıoğlu said that the growing economies will come to mean more trade and profits.

Noting that Europe is seeing the highest growth since the global crisis, the TOBB President pointed out that 50% of Turkey's exports are to this market.

TOBB President Hisarcıklıoğlu noted that the growth means employment, “In February, the President of the Republic of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, was present at the TOBB Trade and Industry Meeting. He urged that everyone there employ at least one other person. In the first 6 months you wrote a great success story. You hired 1,2 million people. This is a world record. There is no example of this in any other country.”
