In January 2020 the TEBD Project organized a Study Visit to Latvia & Estonia on “Business Cooperation between Turkey and the Baltic States”. Ms Pinar Alegöz, an International Trade Coordinator​​​​​​​ from Tarsus Commodity Exchange (Turkey) was one of the participants that had the chance to visit several factories and institutions that are producing according to the EU Acquis.

The Baltic States imports fresh fruits, vegetables, agri-food products, and produces wooden products. Seeing as the agriculture sector In the Tarsus region in Turkey is very developed, Tarsus Commodity Exchange saw great possibilities of collaboration between Turkey and the Baltic States after the TEBD Study Visit and took action towards potential collaborations and partnerships, and share best practices.

As a result of the TEBD Study Visit, for these purposes Tarsus Commodity Exchange organized a webinar on Trade with Baltic States and Opportunities’.
