Update On Toronto-GTA Chapter Mission to Turkey 
On behalf of the Managing Council of the Toronto-GTA Chapter of AmCham Canada, I want to express my appreciation to Vice Chair Rahsan Cebe and the 11 member delegation that took part in the November mission to Turkey. Along with Green & Spiegel LLP, members of the Chapter have led the way in developing a number of business relationships between corporate decision makers in North America and Turkey. At the moment, 4 business from Turkey are in discussions with their North American counterparts.
