14th Anniversary of the Washington Representative Office
November 18 marks the 14th anniversary of the TUSIAD Washington Representative Office.
Since 1998, the Washington Representative Office has been working
to further develop and deepen the U.S. – Turkey relationship by strengthening mutual interaction.
Under the leadership of the first Washington Representative, Abdullah Akyuz, TUSIAD-U.S. has become a trusted source of information on Turkish-American relations. Since its inception, the Washington Representative Office has formed partnerships with U.S. think tanks and non-governmental organizations, organized and sponsored numerous conferences, and has maintained regular contact with the U.S. Administration and Congress – all in an effort to better the bilateral relationship.
14 years later, TUSIAD-U.S. continues to work for closer political and economic ties between Turkey and the United States.
