A delegation of Turkey’s organization of top businessmen has embarked on an official visit to China, where they will pursue new business ties with Chinese businessmen and authorities.

A Turkish Industrialists’ and Businessmen’s Association (TÜSİAD) delegation led by Chairman Muharrem Yılmaz arrived in Beijing yesterday to hold several meetings with their Chinese counterparts and prominent business leaders in the country.

Speaking with a group of Chinese reporters, Yılmaz said “Turkish-Chinese ties shouldn’t just be approached from a business perspective, as they also have strategic importance.”

He underlined Turkey, a country with a population of 1.5-billion, is a “significant” market for Chinese companies that want to open up to the global markets, adding infrastructure in Turkey can support investments as well.

The organization has a representative office in China and encourages its members to get engaged with business opportunities in the populous Asian country, Yılmaz added.

He said he sees infrastructure investments and tourism as particularly promising markets for bilateral business relationships.
