Economic opportunity and development as well as friendship transpired during the Philippine Turkey Night held at the Turkish Tolerance School last July 15. Hosted by the Turkish Chamber of Commerce in the Philippine Inc. (TCCPI), different business sectors were invited in this event wherein Turkish businessmen presented the opportunities local businessmen can have with them.

Zamboanga City Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc. (ZCCCIFI), the prime business organization in Western Mindanao, had an informal sisterhood agreement with TCCPI to make the business transaction between Zamboanga City and Turkey. The agreement will protect the interest of the exchange of products and services between the two countries.

TCCCPI President Irfan Kabarulut was grateful for the warm welcome given to them by the city particularly by Zamboanga City Mayor Celso Lobregat. In his speech, Mayor Lobregat explained to the foreign visitors the investment opportunities in the city and what are the supports the Zamboanga City Investment Office can give to them.

ZCCCIFI President Cholo Soliven (who was out of town that time) hailed this business agreement and foresee that Zamboanga products and services will soon reach the shore of Turkey. In his message through ZCCIFI Dante Corteza, he is optimistic that local businessmen can make business by distributing products and services from Turkey. On the works now are business conferences and trade fair between our Turkish and Zamboangueños businessmen, he said.
