Mediterranean Cereals, Pulses, Oilseeds and Products Exporters’ Association (AHBİB), aiming to find solutions to the problems of the Turkish grains, pulses, oilseeds and products industry with a common mind, held the second consultation meeting in Mersin, Turkiye’s eastern Mediterranean city.
Emphasizing that they are mobilizing for the solution of export restrictions, which stand out among the priority problems of the sector, Veysel Memiş, Chairman of the Board of AHBİB, said that after the bans on bulk olive oil were lifted, chickpea exports were also paved the way.
Noting that they demanded the revision of the method introduced to pave the way for chickpea exports, Veysel Memiş stated that they continued their efforts to completely open the way for exports by removing the restrictions on red lentils, bulghur and other pulses groups in addition to these products.
“Our principle is to act together in a transparent, accessible and communicative manner”
Mersin Commodity Exchange Chairman of the Board Ö. Abdullah Özdemir, AHBİB Board Members and representatives of exporting companies also attended the meeting.
Speaking at the opening of the event, Veysel Memiş, Chairman of AHBİB, reminded that they held the first of the consultation meetings in Hatay province, which they organized in line with the principle of acting together with all stakeholders in a common sense, transparent, accessible and in communication and said that he believed that the meeting in Mersin would also contribute significantly to the motivation of the exporters of the region.
