On October 1, 2010, a Turkish business delegation led by Ercan Hardal, member of the Supervisory Council of Istanbul Ready-Made Garment Exporters' Association (IHKIB), paid a visit to BUCE head office.

During the talks, the Turkish businessmen learnt about BUCE’s core activities and operating principles and discussed possible use of the electronic trading platform of Industrial and Consumer Goods as an effective tool for boosting trade between the Republic of Belarus and Turkey.

The sides agreed that another promising area of BUCE - IHKIB cooperation might be accreditation of one of IHKIB members as an exchange broker. This will help draw new Turkish companies to BUCE’s trading platforms and ensure more effective promotion of BUCE services on the vast market of Turkey. There are plans to include this issue into the agenda of the forthcoming meeting of IHKIB Steering Board.
