TİM’s 29th Ordinary General Council, which has 61 exporters’ associations from 27 branches, was held at the Haliç Congress Center. Mustafa Gültepe, whose name was agreed upon by most of the union and sector leaders, participated as the only candidate in the presidential election in the General Assembly. Mustafa Gültepe, who received 273 of the 274 valid games used, was elected TİM Leader.


Gültepe, whose evaluation of the subject was included in the statement, said that the sections and unions displayed an exemplary solidarity during the election process of the TİM Presidency.

Gültepe, who thanked everyone who trusted and supported him, said:

“Export is Turkey’s future and indisputable. We set out with the aim of making Turkey a brand country in exports. We have to complete scientific and technological transformation in all our departments. Exports with high added cost, strong transportation and logistics infrastructure, turning threats into opportunities, and highly competitive.

We will work to be a country that determines the trends in the world, not follows them. Our country’s share in global exports is around 1%. I believe we have the potential to increase this share by 50 percent. We should be able to catch at least 2 dollars in exports per kilogram.

I know the goal is hardship and the process is grueling. However, I believe that there is no problem that we cannot overcome with a common mind, with the active participation of our 27 branches and 61 unions. In the new era, we will provide TİM with an identity that leads the strategy and vision and sets the agenda. Projects and information flow from our unions, with which we will work more actively and synchronized, will be our most valuable source of information. We will contribute to the development of our exports by maturing the projects and transferring them to the economic administration.”

Gültepe stated that they will stand in the middle of everyone equally in all studies and that they will not get lost in the vicious discussions.
