“The most important thing we need right now is access to financial resources”
Kazım Tayci, Chairman of the Board of IHBIR, whose views were included in the statement, said:
“Despite some signs of recession in Europe, the Far East and the Americas, we continue to grow as the cereals, pulses and oilseeds group without slowing down by breaking our monthly records. Right now, the most important thing we need is access to financial resources. We have serious problems with this. Access to finance seems to be the most important factor that cuts our way and our pace. If the sector’s access to finance is relieved, we will take action to break records again in 2023.”
Tayci stated that they continue on their way to full steam in fair work, purchasing committees, sectoral visits, UR-GE activities and Turkish series projects.
