Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu and comprised of the TOBB General Assembly Chair, TOBB Board, Councils, chamber and exchange presidents as well as various delegates.

TOBB President Hisarcıklıoğlu wrote in the memorial ledger the following:

“Great Atatürk,

We, the administrators and delegates of the Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey, stand before you to express our dedication to the founding principles and goals of our state; our respect for your cherished memories; our gratitude to you and all our veterans and martyrs.

This year we are holding the 75th General Assembly of our institution. In the words we leave on this ledger each year are what we have produced since the last year; what have we achieved; where we are in relation to our goals. When you cleansed our country from enemies and founded this country, you laid the foundations of bright, civilized and beautiful days. As the Turkish private sector, it is our duty to crown the success achieved in war with one of economic success.

We work hard to succeed in the fields of employment, investment and growth. Let none doubt that, like those before us, we and the young generations following us will advance our country to the forefront of economy and civilization, honoring our promise to you. Your trust is both our honor and our greatest treasure.

Great Atatürk,

In the name of our community, we once again remember with gratitude you and everyone who contributed to the establishment of the Republic and have brought it to where we stand today.

The Republic of Turkey will stand forever. May the grace of Allah be upon you.”
