The most important pillar of foreign trade, which has great importance in the development of countries, is export. The increase in exports increases the wealth created in the country and leads to an increase in production efficiency. Realizing this importance, our country realized the establishment of the first Exporters Union in 1937 with the signature of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk.
Exporters’ Associations, which aim to contribute to the increase of exports, to increase professional solidarity, to regulate the professional activities and relations of exporters, to find solutions and to lead the problems, have reached 58 today.
In line with the rapidly developing economy, Exporters’ Associations, operating in 48 points, have included almost all of the export centers, including 13 General Secretaries and 35 online liaison offices, directly within the scope of services within the scope of the policy of bringing service to the exporter’s feet.
The Secretariat General of the Eastern Black Sea Exporters Union was established in 1998 in Trabzon to serve Trabzon exporters. Then, taking into consideration the needs of the region, Rize and Artvin provinces and liaison offices operating in these provinces were connected to our General Secretariat.
