Hisarcıklıoğlu supports YÖREX

02.10.2019 / Ankara- The Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey (TOBB) President M. Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu showed his support for the 10th Local Products Fair (YÖREX) which will be held at the ANFAŞ Exhibition Center on 23-27 October under the leadership of Antalya Commodity Exchange. TOBB President M. Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu, stating that YÖREX has become Turkey's brand, “Our Antalya Commodity Exchange has developed this idea, making it a national brand.”​

TOBB President Hisarcıklıoğlu stated that TOBB has always believed in and supported YÖREX, which brings Anatolia together, and pointed out that YÖREX brought in 42 provinces in the first year and 72 provinces last year. Hisarcıklıoğlu said, “In YÖREX’s 10th year, all the provinces are expected to attend as well as a record number of visitors. YÖREX is a great organization which brings Anatolia's soul, identity, all its colors together. In an area of 10,000 square meters, participants from every corner of Turkey stand side by side in unity, solidarity and fraternity. I come here every year in my tour of Turkey. I have witnessed personally how it has grown and developed.”

 - “YÖREX gives us this opportunity”

 Hisarcıklıoğlu said that Anatolia, which has been home to dozens of civilizations with its 12,000-year history, contains thousands of local products and added, “If we cannot promote and market these values ​​and bring them to the economy, they have no value. Now people prefer local and natural products. They pay more for that. This is what YÖREX offers us. It opens up new opportunities for our producer and entrepreneurs.”


- “YÖREX protects our national values”

 Emphasizing that YÖREX is an organization that protects national values ​​with the logic of ‘consume what is ours,’ TOBB President M. Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu said, “It is our biggest responsibility to teach our children our culture and handcrafted products. With YÖREX, we protect our national values ​​and support local development. We, together with our Chambers and Commodity Exchanges, attain the geographical markers of local values ​​and increase their added value and bring commercial value. We also bring together manufacturers and retailers to help market and sell local products throughout the country. Therefore, we expect all public institutions to support this important organization.”

 Hisarcıklıoğlu stated that chambers and exchanges have invested greatly into YÖREX by embracing and supporting its brand.

 Pointing out that women's labor is immense in local products, Hisarcıklıoğlu said, “We are increasingly seeing women entrepreneurs in YÖREX. Women are the most responsible for this, leading local development. I take pride in our women entrepreneurs.”
