About TEBD

Chambers both in Turkey and in the European Union (EU) have an important role to play in fostering economic cooperation and Turkey’s EU accession process. The EU funded Turkey-EU Business Dialogue (TEBD) Project is based on the long-term partnership of the Association of European Chambers of Commerce and Industry (EUROCHAMBRES) and the Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey (TOBB) as the “voices of the business community” considering their strategic priorities and their members of business communities both in the EU and Turkey. The TEBD project is implemented by EUROCHAMBRES in close cooperation with TOBB, which is the End Beneficiary Institution and is co-funded by the European Union under its IPA II programme with Turkey.    

The TEBD Project brings the Turkish Chambers of Commerce, Industry, and Commodity Exchanges, and their EU counterparts closer trough establishing grant partnerships and implementing a range of activities, providing the Chambers and Commodity Exchanges opportunities to exchange views and practices and to improve business dialogue. The TEBD Project promotes the integration of the European Union and Turkish business communities and ensures greater awareness of business opportunities and challenges of Turkey’s potential future accession to the EU and the modernization of the Customs Union between Turkey and the EU.    

During the implementation of the TEBD Project, Chambers of Commerce and Industry, and Commodity Exchanges from both Turkey and the EU are engaging in Policy and Business Dialogues, Capacity Building, and Chamber Partnerships.

 

About the Agri-Food Forum

Within the scope of the TEBD Policy Dialogue activities, the TEBD AGRI-FOOD FORUM will be organized online on 21-22 April 2021 by the TEBD Project.     

The TEBD Agri-Food Forum will gather industry leaders, policymakers, farmers, Agri-Food supply chain actors, organizations, SMEs, and other public institutions, allowing them to debate on key topics in the field of Agri-Food through 4 different sessions, panel discussions, and interactive round-tables.

The Agri-Food industry is at the heart of the global food system and carries great importance. This last period has been unusual for the global, European, and Turkish Agri-Food ecosystem. However the sector can turn the crisis into an opportunity to reimagine the Agri-Food sector. This event will help understand the future of the sector in the post-pandemic world, in addition to the needs and opportunities of the ecosystem.

The TEBD Agri-Food Forum consists of four engaging and interactive sessions on the topics of:

  • • EU Green Deal
  • • Developments in the EU-TR Agricultural Policies
  • • Food Quality Requirements
  • • Farm to Fork Strategy
  • • Circular Economy
  • • Digitalisation & Agricultural Technology
  • • SME Family Farms & Women Agribusiness Entrepreneurs

This event is suitable for anyone in any stage or has any interest in the Agri-Food sector, or for those who want to learn new strategies, developments, and actions in the field.

Turkish and English Simultaneous translation will be provided during the event.
