The recovery of the economic conjuncture in the world will be the driving force for our country to get out of this process quickly. As real sector players, we need to focus intensively on export activities that will eliminate the foreign trade deficit in this period. On the other hand, it is one of the most important factors in this period for the banks to review their approach to the real sector in terms of access to finance, in terms of the sustainability of production, investment and employment. As the business world of Bursa, we will continue to support all economic and structural reforms that will carry our country to its goals, and to maintain our strong belief in the power and potential of our country.” used the phrases.
