ABOUT G20 YEA

we invite you to be with entrepreneurs in Turkey’s G20 term presidency

The G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance (G20 YEA) is a global network of young entrepreneurs and the organisations that support them. It was established to convene each year in advance of the G-20 Summit, with the aim of championing the importance of young entrepreneurs to the G20 member nations and to share examples and practices. The Alliance was officially created at the G20 Young Entrepreneurs Summit, Toronto, Canada, 2010.

G20 YEA Summit is being held each year since 2010. First meeting was held in Canada. France, Mexico, Russia, Australia Summits followed first one. Innovation and technology, investment and access to capital, education and coordinated support, government regulation and taxation, trade and globalization, entrepreneurship, culture and equality are the main topics of the summit.

TUGIAD took over the Presidency on behalf of Turkey in Sydney on July 2014. “Entrepreneurial Culture” framework will be discussed in detail within the sub-headings in Turkey Summit, 2015.

    G20 Turkey 2015

    Message from Deputy Prime Minister of Turkey H.E. Ali Babacan

    Our country has undertaken the Term Presidency of G20 platform as of December 1st, 2014. Surely this role is both a historic opportunity and an important responsibility for our country. Our works are meticulously continued in order to fulfill this important task in a most effective way and the success of these works depend contribution of all civil community as well as government institutions.

    Hence, TÜGİAD will be an important contributor to our works within the context of G20 as a community of young businessmen which aims to support entrepreneurship, main source of growth and employment.

    Entrepreneurship has become even more important tool for restoring the dynamism during the recovery period after last global financial crisis. Our country has made significant progress in recent years in this regard with its young and growing population and strong entrepreneurship spirit. Entrepreneurship, located in the heart of our economic model, is essential for both SMEs to increase added value of their production and for big companies to renew themselves accordingly with changing market conditions.

    I have full faith in the success of Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance Summit where the problems of young entrepreneurs will be handled and possible solutions will be discussed under the leadership of TÜGİAD and with keen participation and valuable contribution of young entrepreneurs.

    In this wise, I wish success to TÜGİAD in the summit process and would like to indicate support of our G20 Presidency.

    Ali BABACAN
    Deputy Prime Minister

    B20 Turkey 2015

    Message from B20 Turkey President Mr. Rifat Hisarcıklıoglu

    Since it assumed the G20 Presidency in December 2014, Turkey has sought to take the summit in new and more inclusive directions. This has included preparing recommendations aimed at developed and developing countries alike, as well as creating a B20 taskforce specifically for small-and-medium-sized businesses (SMEs) and entrepreneurs. The B20, the business outreach group of the G20, has embraced the creation of such a taskforce, given just how critical SMEs and entrepreneurs are to the global economy. After all, SMEs now account for a majority of the global private sector workforce (roughly 66%), and entrepreneurs – now more than ever – represent the vanguard of innovation and economic progress. In today’s ever-changing business environment, the G20 and B20 simply cannot ignore these stakeholders.

    In addition to developing recommendations for entrepreneurs and small businesses, the B20 is proud to support organizations critical to their success, such as TÜGİAD and the TOBB Young Entrepreneurs Council. As the president of TOBB, I give special importance to enhance the entrepreneurial spirit of young people. That’s why we established TOBB Young Entrepreneurs Council in 2009. From its establishment to this day, the Council has accessed over 8000 members all around Turkey, covering and supporting all related stakeholders.

    Given the complex and difficult nature of entrepreneurship, these organizations are particularly valuable, as they supply young entrepreneurs with leadership training, networking opportunities, and other essential services. We also enthusiastically support the G20’s Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance Summit, which will be held in September. It is our belief that the summit will give an invaluable platform to young entrepreneurs and businesspeople to express problems, examine solutions, and discuss the economic environment.

    As we approach the Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance Summit, the B20 would like to emphasize its support for the gathering. Together with the efforts of the G20 and B20, there is no doubt in my mind that the cause of SMEs and entrepreneurs will be advanced world-wide in 2015. And for that, I am truly excited.
