"Sabanci warns: TUSAID representation important for Turkey at October 3 talks
Omer Sabanci, president of the the powerful Turkish Industrialists and Entrepreneurs' Association (TUSAID), has commented on the question of which business organizations, if any, would be representing Turkey during the accession talks with the EU, scheduled to start on October 3. Sabanci, who has stressed that if TUSAID is to be a part of the process, it must represent itself autonomously and not be represented by the government, said this: "If the government bases its representation on a hierarchical categorization system, we cannot accept this." Sabanci noted that the government was well aware of TUSAID's efforts regarding Turkey's EU quest, and said that whichever organizations had the po
wer and knowledge to help Turkey during the process should be included in the talks."
