Representatives of the real sector and finance sector came together for consultation in Istanbul. The Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey (TOBB) - Turkey Banks Union (TBB) Real Sector and Financial Sector Dialogue Strengthening Meeting was held in Istanbul after Denizli, Konya and Izmir. Before the meeting, TOBB President M. Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu and TBB President Hüseyin Aydın stated that they’ve convened to talk about the issues and to have the two arteries of the economy understand each other better.​

TOBB President M. Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu said, “Our banks have entered the field to listen to the problems of the real sector. We have seen in Anatolia that these meetings draw great interest. The banking sector and the real sector come together for the first time and listen to the troubles of each other. This is very important.”

Pointing out that it is very important to keep access to finance for the real sector and SMEs open, Hisarcıklıoğlu said that while the revival in the economy is not yet at the desired level, they will overcome current problems. Stating that with the VAT and SCT discounts the government has taken the first steps, the TOBB President said, “We believe that these problems are temporary and Turkey has a solid foundation. We will overcome this as well.”

TBB President Hüseyin Aydın said, “We have come together to understand each other, listen to each other’s troubles and overcome the problems together.” Stating that people should want the best not only for themselves but also for their countries, Aydın expressed his belief that the meetings will be beneficial for both sectors.
