WELCOME TO TEBD

Chambers both in Turkey and in the European Union (EU) have an important role to play in economic cooperation and Turkey’s EU accession process. The Turkey-EU Business Dialogue (TEBD) Project is based on the long-term partnership of the Association of European Chambers of Commerce and Industry (EUROCHAMBRES) and the Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey (TOBB) as the “voices of the business community” considering their strategic priorities and their members of business communities both in the EU and Turkey.

The TEBD Project brings the Turkish Chambers of Commerce, Industry, and Commodity Exchanges, and their EU counterparts closer trough establishing grant partnerships and implementing a range of activities, providing the Chambers and Commodity Exchanges opportunities to exchange views and practices and to improve business dialogue. The TEBD Project promotes the integration of the European Union and Turkish business communities and ensures greater awareness of business opportunities and challenges of Turkey’s potential future accession to the EU and the modernization of the Customs Union between Turkey and the EU.

This website offers an overview of all activities implemented in the framework of the TEBD Project since its inception on July 2018.

The Turkey-EU Business Dialogue (TEBD) is a project co-funded by the European Union under its IPA II programme with Turkey that aims to strengthen mutual understanding and cooperation between the Turkish and the European private sectors. Activities are implemented by the European and Turkish Chambers of Commerce and Industry.


TEBD is managed by EUROCHAMBRES, through a grant contract with CFCU,
in close cooperation with TOBB as the end beneficiary institution of the project.

“My biggest win from the Study Visit to Brussels was understanding how to manage EU projects. (...) TEBD gave us step-by-step guidance on where to start and how to communicate. Also, we were able to meet with colleagues who are from chambers in other countries. In this way, we could widen our business and cultural perspectives.”
