26.09.2022 /  Afyonkarahisar

The Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Türkiye (TOBB) President M. Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu attended the opening ceremony of the TOBB Compliance and Mediation Center at the Afyonkarahisar Chamber of Commerce and Industry.​

Speaking at the ceremony, Hisarcıklıoğlu said, “I am honored to be among you in Afyonkarahisar, the city of liberation, resurrection and victory, the crossroads center of Western Anatolia, we have come for good deeds. First, we opened the representative office of our Chamber in İscehisar. Now, we will activate the Mediation Center established within our Chamber.”

Reminding that commercial cases lasted for years, Hisarcıklıoğlu said, “Thanks to Mr. Cemil Çiçek, during his term as the Minister of Justice, he took on this job and introduced the mediation system. Instead of ending in 4 years, one of our cases ends in 3 months. The number of applications to mediation reached 100,000 per month. And 70 percent of them ended up in a deal. So access to justice has accelerated. Most importantly, the parties parted peacefully.”

Hisarcıklıoğlu said that Afyonkarahisar Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Commodity Exchange are accredited, that is, 5-star chambers, and that it is the third in Türkiye among the Chambers of Commerce and Industry throughout the country with the score it received in the latest audits.

Hisarcıklıoğlu said that they will contribute to the Health Industrial Zone to be established as TOBB and said, “Afyonkarahisar CCI has protected local values. Afyon Marble, Sausage, Beef Bacon, Buffalo Yoghurt and Cream have been protected by geomarkers. Gazi Vocational and Technical Anatolian High School, of which he is the patron, has entered the top 20 in the country on the basis of working capital. Our chamber service building has also signed another first by obtaining a Green Building certificate. Afterwards, it was selected as the winner of the worldwide competition and crowned this success. For all these exemplary works they have done and the works they have brought to our city, I wholeheartedly congratulate our President Hüsnü Serteser, all his administration, assembly, secretary general and my working brothers and sisters.”

TOBB President Hisarcıklıoğlu, reminding that as TOBB, they have built 2 high schools in the center and Bolvadin, gave the good news that they have decided to build a school in Çay, Dinar, Emirdağ and Sandıklı districts.

Hisarcıklıoğlu, explaining that during the pandemic, the presidents of 365 chambers/commodity exchanges conveyed the problems and solution demands of their members to him, “Together, we conveyed these to the government, which is the executive office. We also got results from a significant part of them. A lot of support and arrangements have been implemented. We have problems. It is our job to be the voice of our members and their interpreters, that is the duty given to us by law. The executive authority and responsibility belongs to our government.”
