Turkish Exporters Assembly (TIM), held its 26th Annual General Assembly and award ceremony of export champions in 2018 was held. President Erdogan and many ministers, TIM council members, union presidents and representatives of non-governmental organizations attended the Annual General Assembly. The top 10 export companies were awarded.

President Erdoğan said in the General Assembly: “We are very close to the goal of current account surplus. We trust you and you trust us as well. We have implemented huge reforms in every field to support our exporters. In order to support our exporters in the last year, we have allocated 2 billion TL and will allocate 3.1 billion TL this year.

Also, Chairman Gülle stated that “From now on, our vision is ‘Turkey in Knowledge Competition’. Knowledge Competition does not mean abandoning production, but rather restructuring to achieve higher value-added production and, on the other hand, Knowledge Competition means that Turkey will eventually experience the current account surplus. While conveying our thanks once again for the support that our state has given for production, investment and employment so far, as emphasized in every speech of Mr. President, digital and technological transformation also needs new generation state supports.

Kılıç Seafood co. Vice President Sinan Kzııltan stated that ‘We owe our success largely to our high quality production processes comprised of accurate and scientific methods in addition to the use of our high quality fish feed. Now that we are recognized as the largest fish cultivator and exporter of live fish for the first time in the world, we achieved this success by remaining dedicated to quality and scientific methods. As a company which has raised its level of achievement since its establishment, Kılıç Deniz will continue to contribute to our country with its production and sales network in Turkey and abroad in line with the principles of quality and ethics with due awareness for its current position. ‘
