The Buyers Mission program organized by ISIB for the 16th ISK Sodex Istanbul Exhibition commenced with the participation of nearly 300 foreign businessmen from 70 countries. Representatives of the companies constituting the Turkish HVAC-R Sector will meet with foreign business people for three days to work on their products’ commercialization and exportation.
Mehmet Şanal, Chairman of the Board of Directors of ISIB, members of the Board of Directors and Supervisory Board of ISIB and related sector representatives attended the opening ceremony of the Buyers Mission program on Tuesday, October 24.
Making statements about the sector’s development, Mehmet Şanal, Chairman of the Board of Directors of ISIB, stated that since its establishment, ISIB has been taking firm steps forward with the vision of continuous growth in exports alongside the sector and its sub-sectors and added: “After completing the year 2022 with a sector export size of 6.7 billion dollars, we anticipate completing this year with a sector export size of 7.2 billion dollars, which we set as a target. However, with an export-to-import ratio of 91%, we actively support our country’s mission to reduce its reliance on imports.”
Şanal stated that the sector undertakes many critical tasks for climate and air by producing energy-efficient devices that protect nature and people, and they work for the entire world as a responsible sector.
Stating that ISK-SODEX Istanbul, the largest exhibition in the HVAC-R sector, will be held with a large participation this year, Şanal concluded his statements as follows: “This year, as the Turkish HVAC-R Exporters Association, we are organizing the Buyers Mission program, which we have been doing in the past years.” This year, we host representatives from nearly 300 foreign companies from 70 different countries as part of the Buyers Mission Program in Türkiye. I believe that the B2B meetings that will be held as part of the Buyers Mission program for all of our companies in the HVAC-R sector will be successful and will support them in further increasing their exports.”
