    More than 60 companies from six member countries of the Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO), attended the first ECO Buyers-Sellers Meeting on Textiles and Clothing (Istanbul, October 2001). The representatives from Azerbaijan, the Islamic Republic of Iran, Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Turkey and Uzbekistan found that the meeting provided a unique platform to develop business links, identify regional investment opportunities and establish other forms of partnerships including joint ventures.

    The meeting formed one of several ECO, ITC and United Nations Development Programme initiatives, which aim to expand intra-regional trade among ECO member states. Other ECO members include Afghanistan, Pakistan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan.

    The buyers-sellers meeting was organized jointly by ITC and the ECO Secretariat in cooperation with the Istanbul Chamber of Commerce and was the first event of its kind for ITC in the ECO region.
