  • President's Message

  • It has been 15 years since the Turkish Business Council in Dubai and Northern Emirates (TBC) was founded under the roof of Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry by a handful of Turkish businessmen with the aim of increasing the economic activities, cooperation and enhance trade relations between the business communities of Dubai.

  • Since then Turkish Business Council is the only official business organization that represents the Turkish business community residing in the UAE, as well as the Turkish companies and commercial entities who have chosen Dubai as an ideal location in the Middle East to grow their business and hence TBC plays a vital role in connecting the Turkish business society within the UAE.

  • It is with great honor that I got the opportunity to serve as the newly elected President of the Board of Directors of TBC starting from 20th of March 2019. Since then, myself, our board members and newly appointed business council coordinators have been working relentlessly to improve structure and policies of our business council in order to ensure a more efficient and dynamic environment for our valuable members as well as the Turkish business community in the UAE. It is my main goal to fulfill all responsibilities embedded in this challenging role and elevate the Turkish Business Councils to higher levels with the valuable contributions of all our board members, council members and the Turkish community living in Dubai and the Northern Emirates. 

  • We have set ambitious targets to achieve during our new term and carry the flag for future managements as it has always been. We will strengthen the ties within the Turkish business community to reflect our combined power in each and every sector we are representing in the UAE such as tourism, hospitality, banking and finance, trade, logistics, construction, services and Information Technologies as the rising industry not only Turkey but also globally. TBC is determined to play a proactive role in embracing our society and bringing together all the members to create a synergy between them. This can only be possible by creating awareness of the power of Turkish expats living and doing business in the UAE. On other hand Expo 2020 being the most awaited business catalyst in the Middle East obviously will help us to position ourselves in this excellent and dynamic business environment, which all existing and potential members should benefit greatly.

  • Today, we have almost 200 distinguished corporate and individual members and as we witness a continuous increase in the number of Turkish entrepreneurs, investors, successful Turkish professionals among all industries and background, leading brands and companies of Turkey finding their well-deserved place in the multinational and highly competitive business environment of Dubai, we target to double the number of members by the next issue of this Membership directory in 2020.

     

  • We believe, our collective effort and common aim of enhancing the business and social ties of our Turkish community in UAE will be the most important factor in achieving our targets. TBC will continue to attract new Turkish corporations and individuals that enter the UAE market, and nationalities that have various relationships with Turkey.

  • For this purpose, we expect more interest, involvement, contribution and effort from all the members of the Turkish business community living in UAE, and in return the benefits of such collaboration will be for all of us. We are excited and filled with passion to grow our business community further.
