On March 3-5, 2015, a BUCE working group led by Arkady Salikov, Chairman of the Board, visited Istanbul (Turkey). During the meeting with Jan Beyoglu, Chairman of the Board of Indeks A.S., BUCE representatives signed an Agreement on Cooperation that authorizes Indeks A.S. to promote Belarusian products in Turkey using its own distribution network. In accordance with the Agreement, Indeks A.S. is now BUCE’s official representative in the Republic of Turkey.

The meeting with Erfor top management proved no less fruitful. As a result of the talks, Erfor agreed to place pilot orders for peat and regularized round timber at BUCE’s electronic trading platform.

Additionally, BUCE representatives paid a visit to Istanbul Commodity Exchange (ICE) where they met with Ali Kopuz, ICE President, to discuss the development of interexchange collaboration under the previously signed Agreement on Cooperation. In particular, the sides agreed to consider the possibility of mutual access of ICE and BUCE accredited clients to trading platforms of both exchanges.
