Trade mission to Turkey


From 4 to 9 May 2014 Thomas Geck, CEO of Delta Systemtechnik GmbH, took part in a trade mission to Turkey accompanied by Stephan Weil, the Prime Minister of Lower Saxony.
This trip involved gaining exposure to the Turkish economy and, in particular, the economic centres of Ankara and Konya. Exchanges were organised in both cities for the exchange of interests in which the delegates were able to participate, to learn about various companies in the respective cities and to consider whether there is potential for cooperation. These exchanges garnered wide approval among the delegates and provided fairly promising foundations for possible further cooperation.
The trip to Turkey also included, among other things, a visit to the MAN factory in Ankara, a meeting with the German ambassador in Ankara in conjunction with a dinner and an information exchange with members of the German-Turkish Chamber of Industry and Commerce during a cruise on the Bosphorus. In addition, there was still time to have a look at the old town of the city of Konya and to visit the Sakib Sabanci Museum in Istanbul.
The delegates had the opportunity to share knowledge and get to know each other. So interesting contacts and connections were established within the delegation group, which will now be given attention in the aftermath of ther trip. Various dates and further talks have already been agreed, so that a good foundation has been laid for possible future cooperation.
The entire trade mission was perfectly organised and the process went smoothly. Taking part in the trip was an interesting and useful experience for Mr Geck, and was a success in every respect. The expectations that Mr Geck had during the trip were fulfilled – contact was able to be established in all areas that could be helpful and promising to the development of Delta Systemtechnik GmbH. He hereby gives thanks to all participants of the Hanover Chamber of Industry and Commerce, the Lower Saxony State Chancellery and TUI for their capable organisation and support.
