Zachau told reporters during his visit to the Chamber of Industry in the southeastern province of Gaziantep that the World Bank provided loans to banks in Turkey, which in turn provided loans to Turkish companies. He said they also shared know-how and the experiences of various countries with Turkey's government.
Zachau said chambers and labor unions had an important part to play in the country's development. "As a matter of fact we have made very interesting assessments. On the one hand, we see growth and opportunities for success, but on the other hand, we see some drawbacks such as education and unemployment," said Zachau.
