About Turkish American Business Improvement and Development Council
Turkish American Business Improvement and Development Council, turkish diaspora Turkish American Business Improvement and Development Council TABID was founded as a self-supporting and non-profit organization in New York by a group of businessmen and professionals to facilitate commerce between the US and Turkey and to establish partnerships between Turkish and American Businessmen. Although the trade volume between the USA, the largest market in the world, and Turkey, which is located in the intersection of the worlds important markets, has been increasing each year, it has not reached to the desired level yet. Turkey, having a strong tradition of international trade and a strategic location in the crossroads of the continents and historic trade routes, needs to develop business activities and improve its trade relations with the USA in order to mobilize its potentials internationally without limiting itself to Europe and the neighboring countries. It’s obviously necessary to increase the number of organizations that will work for this objective along with the both countries’ chambers of commerce and business councils to enhance business activities between two countries. Established by a number of volunteers who wish to use their experience and encourage their contacts in the USA and Turkey to work for this goal, TABID also believes that in order to perform more efficient business activities in the region, the USA also needs to establish stronger business relations with Turkey – a country determined to enter European Union and has cultural and historical ties with the Middle Eastern and Central Asian Countries.
