International Engineering Fair
Turkey exhibits in Brno
The International Engineering Fair was designed as a platform for establishing international business contacts from its very beginning and it also fulfils its export promotion role today.
High internationality, where almost half the exhibitors are foreign companies, along with a high quality visitor structure, are prerequisite for successful business meetings. Establishing cooperation in new markets is also supported since 2008 by the MSV partner country project which always highlights one foreign country as the official partner of the year. In 2013, Turkey becomes the partner country; a country with a rapidly growing economy will present itself in Brno through about a hundred exhibiting companies from different industries.
Czech - Turkish economic relations have good prospects and a growing tendency. Over the last ten years, bilateral trade turnover increased more than tenfold and continues to grow also due to the implementation of major Czech supplies of power equipment. The Turkish market with nearly 75 million consumers is now sought by exporters from around the world and Czech companies thrive here especially in promoting traditional export commodities such as machinery for power plants, medical equipment and parts for the automotive industry. Turkey was included among the twelve priority countries of Czech exports and it is the second most important market in Asia after China.
Turkey will present itself at MSV in Brno as a country with a broad offer of quality industrial goods. It is a successful exporter that is trying to break the boundaries of 150 billion USD in exports by increasing competitiveness in developed foreign markets in all fields, including engineering. The Czech Republic is one of the interesting EU countries for Turkey and at the same time a suitable springboard to markets in Central Europe. An extensive presentation at the MSV 2013 is therefore supported by Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Economy Minister Zafer Caglayan.
The MSV partner country project will include a series of accompanying activities, including economic and technology forums and Turkish exhibitors can thus benefit from increased publicity. In 2008, Germany became the MSV first partner country, followed by Slovakia, Austria, Poland and India.
Besides Turkey, increased attention will also be paid to Slovakia as the traditional economic partner of the Czech Republic. MSV originated 55 years ago as a Czechoslovak trade fair and remained so throughout the years even after the splitting of Czechoslovakia. Therefore, the organizers decided to highlight this fact and representatives of the Slovak government are always invited to the official openings of the fair.
