The U.S.-Turkey Business Council (USTBC) is a vehicle for dialogue and engagement between American and Turkish business and governmental decision-makers. Through the Council, American and Turkish companies collaborate to establish partnerships and advocate for economic, legal, and political policies that expand bilateral trade between the United States and Turkey, open new markets to foreign direct investment, and create employment opportunities in both countries.
The USTBC is a core program of the Turkey and Middle East Affairs, located at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. It is part of the U.S. Chamber’s International Affairs, which boasts a collection of top trade, policy, and legal experts who advocate on behalf of the U.S. private sector across the globe. The Council has full access to the U.S. Chamber’s congressional and legal affairs divisions, as well as various Chamber institutes and programs. This access can be used to advance USTBC policies, programs, and initiatives.
