Over 30 Greek firms to join Turkish business forum, official says

More than 30 Greek companies will take part in a business forum in the Aegean city of Izmir this week, a Greek diplomat said on Tuesday.

Hara Skolarikou, Greek consul general in Izmir, said that the Greek Embassy in Ankara and Izmir Chamber of Commerce would co-host a "Turkish-Greek Business Forum" in Izmir on October 15-16.

"More than 30 Greek companies will join the forum," Skolarikou told a press conference.

Skolarikou said that the main theme of the forum would be food and beverages.

"The aim of the forum is to boost economic and commercial relations between Turkish and Greek business worlds, local organizations and local administrations, and increase trade between the Greek islands and the west coasts of Turkey," Skolarikou also said.

Skolarikou said Greek Ambassador to Turkey Fotios Xydas would grant awards to Turkish companies that contributed to trade between the two countries and facilitated export of Greek products to Turkish markets.

Also, Skolarikou said Turkish exports to Greece were more than Greek exports to Turkey, and they expected companies joining the forum to help balance the trade volume.

Ekrem Demirtas, chairman of the Izmir Chamber of Commerce, said that around 50 Turkish companies would attend the forum.
