Hellenic Business Club of Türkiye (HBCT)

Given the absence of any organization or platform that functions as a "cohesive link" of the Greek and expatriate business and entrepreneurial presence in Istanbul, and in Türkiye as well, we ‘ve created the Hellenic Business Club of Türkiye - HBCT. It’s an initiative of the Embassy of Greece in Ankara and the Ambassador Mr. Christodoulos Lazaris, in cooperation with the rest of our Diplomatic Representations in Türkiye.

The Club, in its first steps, will be supported by the Economic and Commercial Affairs Offices (ECO) of the Embassy of Greece in Ankara (Mrs. Paraskevi Tasakou, Minister Counselor - Economic) and the Consulate General of Greece in Istanbul. In particular, the ECO Office in Istanbul, will take care of the initial organizational matters of the Club and will undertake its secretarial support, communication and information, membership campaigns as well as the organization of various events and member meetings.

With the aim of spreading the role and duties of the Club, we have created both this website and an account on LinkedIn business networking platform.

Hoping that our venture will be embraced and supported by the Greek business community in Türkiye, I invite you to become members of the Hellenic Business Club of Türkiye, your own Club.
