Global Trade Agency Project

Bursa Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BTSO), as the umbrella organization for Bursa's economy, has implemented the Global Trade Agency Project with the vision of Turkey's development based on exports and the empowerment of SME's with an exporter identity. Through this project, BTSO enables its members to become key players in the global arena.

With the aim of enhancing companies production and export performance, keeping up with global developments, getting to know international competitors, and adapting to new technologies, our "Global Trade Agency" project provides our members with the opportunity to visit the most prestigious fairs abroad.

In 2014, nearly 1,000 of our members participated in 23 fair organizations in more than 10 countries on 4 continents. In 2015, approximately 1,500 of our members visited a total of 31 fairs. Continuing its efforts with increasing performance in 2016 and 2017, our Chamber organized events at major centers worldwide, including Frankfurt, Paris, Milan, Tokyo, Munich, Dubai, Madrid, and New York. Within 5 years, BTSO facilitated the participation of over 6,000 members in more than 160 international business trips.

As a result, many of our members had the opportunity to travel abroad for the first time and conduct research related to their industries.

With the contribution of BTSO's projects, our city gained 1,000 new exporters within 5 years. In other words, the increase in the number of exporters in Bursa is equivalent to the total number of exporters in neighbouring cities combined.

Within the scope of business trips, BTSO and KOSGEB utilized 22 million TL in support, visited nearly 150 foreign chambers of commerce and professional organizations, and held bilateral business meetings with over 1,200 foreign companies. One out of every eight of our members traveled abroad.

According to post-trip surveys conducted with participants, the overall satisfaction rate is over 85%.
