EGD New Year Meeting was Held under the Main Sponsorship of Başarsoft and BitTurk

The traditional New Year Meeting of the Association of Economic Journalists (EGD) was held at the Foreign Trade Complex of the Turkish Exporters Assembly (TIM).

The New Year Meeting of the Association of Economic Journalists was hosted by TİM, with the main sponsorship of Başarsoft and BitTurk, with the contributions of Arzum and PAGEV.

EGD members, business world and political figures also participated physically and online.

İsmail Gülle, President of the Turkish Exporters Assembly (TİM), said, “Hopefully, we will reach our target of ‘Turkey with Foreign Trade Surplus’ in the near future. I believe we will achieve this in 2022.”

Başarsoft CEO and YASAD Deputy Chairman Alim KÜÇÜKPEHLİVAN: “We, three young engineers 25 years ago, set out to produce digital maps. In those days, we did not even imagine that these maps we produced would be in everyone’s pockets in the future.
Today, we are expanding our horizons because we need to do something new in the next 25 years. And this is why we stepped into the world of blockchain, which is a new experience for us. We bought a modest 10 percent stake in BitTurk, which was founded by two young friends and started as a cryptocurrency exchange, but also offers alternative solutions in the blockchain chain, especially for the financial sector.

Our stake is modest, but our aim is high. We plan to be an effective player not only in Turkey but also in the global arena. As BitTurk, we want to be in a position that touches everyone’s pocket, although we may not be in everyone’s pockets in the next 25 years.”
