ITC Client Participates in Trade Mission to Turkey

In April 2011, Bill Kuzma Sr., Vice President of Natural Enrichment Industries (NEI), traveled for the first time to Turkey and participated in a trade mission led by the Illinois Office of Trade and Investment and the Turkish Chamber of Commerce in Chicago.

During the trade mission, Mr. Kuzma met with several government officials as well as potential partners who all expressed strong interest in NEI's products.

"Dear Silvia,

My first visit to Turkey was very promising. It is NEI's belief that in the near future we will be exporting to that country. Since getting back, a number of Turkish companies have made follow-up contacts.

Thank you and the ITC staff for the help provided in gathering information on Turkey and the translation work on our publications. It was very effective in creating positive introductions.

Regards, Bill Kuzma"
