Today, President Wolfgang Qi and Deputy Secretary-General Wency Tan of IFA warmly received Commercial Attache Serdar AFŞA and his colleague from Consulate General of the Republic of Turkey in Guangzhou.
First of all, President Qi welcomed Mr. Serdar AFŞA's visit and expressed his heartfelt thanks to the consulate for its support and trust in the past activities. After Turkish cherry and dairy products gained access to the Chinese market, IFA&F2C and the Turkish Consulate jointly held "Turkish Cherry Matchmaking Event" and "Turkish Pinar Cheese Tasting & Promotion Event" and other activities, which were highly praised by guests present.
Then, Mr. Serdar AFŞA also highly appreciated the past cooperation with IFA&F2C and said that he will return Turkey in January next year and he believed that the new commercial attache will continue to promote the cooperation in food industry between China and Turkey and help more high-quality Turkish enterprises enter the south China market through IFA & F2C, a professional one-stop services platform.
In addition, Mr. Serdar AFŞA said that Turkey has many high-quality food products such as cheese, wine, dried fruit, olive oil and cherries. Turkey is one of the top 10 dairy producers in the world, producing a variety of delicious cheeses with unique flavors. In May 2020, after Turkish dairy products get access to the Chinese market, China may become the largest and most potential market for Turkish dairy products. Thanks to the superior climatic conditions, Turkey is also the world's largest producer of filbert.
In the future, we will continue to cooperate with foreign chambers of commerce in China to jointly turn Food2China Trading Center into the most influential gathering place of imported food industry and bring more high-quality foreign food to South China as well as promote the in-depth development of the imported food industry.
