A delegation from the Turkish Industry and Business Association (TUSIAD), led by Ms. Umit Boyner, president of its Board of Directors, recently visited Washington, D.C. for a series of talks on U.S.-Turkey relations.
On December 4, TCA was proud to introduce the delegation to Rep. Dan Burton, Chair of the House Subcommittee on Europe and Eurasia, and Rep. Gregory W. Meeks, ranking member of the House Subcommittee on Europe and Eurasia. TCA President G. Lincoln McCurdy joined the delegation and the two members of Congress for a discussion on U.S.-Turkey trade relations.
Later in the evening, TCA sponsored a reception hosted by Rep. Virginia Foxx, Co-chair of the Congressional Caucus on Turkey and Turkish Americans (Turkey Caucus). In attendance were twenty members of Congress, including Rep. Ed Whitfield, Co-chair of the Turkey Caucus and Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Chairman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. Several senior Congressional staff were also present at the Capitol Hill reception.
