Turkey & ACS Explore Further Cooperation

Secretary General Rodolfo Sabonge paid a courtesy call to the Ambassador of the Republic of Turkey Bengü Yiğitgüden in Port-of-Spain. SG Sabonge thanked Turkey for its continued interest in cooperating on ACS projects in sustainable tourism and coastal erosion.

SG Sabonge extended condolences on behalf of the ACS to the government and people of Turkey in the aftermath of last week’s powerful earthquake, which claimed at least 64 lives.

Ambassador Yiğitgüden expressed Turkey’s desire to continue working with the countries of the region, developing cooperation initiatives in culture, sustainable tourism and marketing, transport, and training and development.

Turkey has been an Observer of the ACS since 2000.
