The Turkish-Mexican Business Council Meeting recently took place in İstanbul and was hosted by TOBB (the Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey) and DEİK President M. Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu. Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, and Turkey's Science, Industry and Technology Minister Nihat Ergün were joined by business leaders from both countries during the historic announcement. Pointing out the importance of the Strategic Partnership in the 21st Century agreement signed by the leaders of the two countries, Hisarcıklıoğlu stated that this key partnership would increase the weight behind Turkey and Mexico in the global order.
TOBB and DEİK President M. Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu emphasized that they view Turkey and Mexico as two of the most dynamic actors of the new global power architecture, stating, “per the partnership declaration signed by our leaders yesterday, Turkey and Mexico will create joint strategic policies on the global and local scale.” Drawing attention to the fact that bilateral relations are not yet at the desired level, Hisarcıklıoğlu said, “our bilateral relations are not becoming of our friendship. Our trade volume is 1.2 billion USD (Mexico 780, Turkey 400) while only 1 billion USD of that is bilateral trade (206 imports, 867 exports). That is but a drop in the ocean."
