Baroness Udin and Lord Alf hosted a luncheon at the House of Lords on occasion of the inauguration. Turkey's Ambassador to Britain Yigit Alpogan; MUSIAD Chairman Omer Bolat; Remzi Gur, the founder chairman of the MUSIAD office in London; and Hakan Camuz, the head of the newly-opened office, participated in the luncheon.
Udin said she believes Turkey will become an EU member in possible shortest time, and they are supporting Turkey's bid as much as they can; whereas Lord Alf said Turkey's membership will contribute to Europe as much as it does to Turkey.
On the other hand, during the inauguration ceremony, Bolat said Turkish-British trade volume is over 15 billion USD.
"Britain is the 'only country' among western countries with which Turkey has a foreign trade surplus," Bolat also said.
