İstanbul Chamber of Commerce Monitoring Visit
The Monitoring Visits are continued successfully by TEBD Project Director, Ms Oya ERSÖZ, to the project “Twinning for Digitalization (T4D)” implemented by İstanbul Chamber of Commerce (İstanbul CC), Turkey in partnership Paris Ile-de-France Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Paris IdF CCI), France. It is one of 19 partnerships projects which is supported by the European Union in the framework of the TEBD project.
The aim of this TEBD Chamber Partnership Project is to strengthen the capacity of Istanbul CC to provide advice and support to SMEs, in order help them access the benefits of digital technologies – including online marketing and e-commerce. In particular, the project partners are sharing knowledge and expertise that Paris IdF CCI has gained through the development of its own digital support service network under the label of “Les Digiteurs”.
An ecosystem for the Digital Transformation of SMEs is intended to be realized in the partnership of Istanbul CC and Paris IdF CCI and the positive impacts of the T4D project are expected to spread beyond Istanbul to other parts of Turkey, as knowledge and best practices are disseminated. Moreover, the T4D partners hope that their project will make a crucial contribution not only to the digitalization of companies but also to the strengthening of mutual knowledge and understanding between the Turkish and EU business communities.
