MUSIAD invites Turkish businessmen to the American market


President of the Turkish Association of Independent Industrialists and Businessmen (MUSIAD), Mahmut Asmalı, called on Turkish businessmen to open up to the United States market, “especially with the presence of an American strategy to get rid of the Chinese market and open up to different markets.”

On Tuesday, Asmalı explained that they came to the United States of America with more than 70 members from various sectors in Turkey to carry out “important activities.”

He pointed out that they organized a communication event in the US state of New Jersey with the participation of Turkey’s ambassador to Washington, Sedat Önal, and local businessmen and politicians, and that they opened an office for MUSIAD in New York State.

He stated that they reward those who support Turkey’s exports with the Turkish-American National Steering Committee.


He pointed out that MUSIAD has 9 points of representation in the United States of America, and has a desire to increase these points to 13 points by adding the states of Ohio, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Florida by the end of the year.

Asmalı said: “The United States of America is an important market and it is the country to which Turkey exports the largest volume of exports after Germany.”

He added: “The volume of bilateral trade with the United States has risen to $30 billion.”

He stressed that the targeted trade exchange volume is $100 billion between the two countries.

He asked Turkish businessmen to focus on the American market, noting that the country’s per capita national income is about $80,000, which is approximately 1.5 times that of its counterpart in the European Union.

He stressed that “the American market should never be neglected or left empty.”
