Mr. Howard Garrett Beasey, The new President and Chief Executive Officer of the American-Turkish Council assessed new structure, strategies and coming activities of ATC

Date: Issue 63 - September 2015

Defence Turkey: Mr. Beasey, first of all thank you very much for this interview. You have been appointed as President and CEO of ATC in February 2015.  Could you please inform us about new structure and activities of ATC in this new term? 

It is a very exciting time at the ATC. We have streamlined and upgraded our online platforms, including our social media platforms, and added some new items to the 34th Annual Conference, taking place September 27-30, 2015 at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Washington, DC. This year, more so than any other year, we are providing a broad range of forums for dialogue between the American and Turkish Business communities to better reflect the dynamic and diverse bilateral economic relationship. As a member based organization with multiple defense industry members, the ATC continues to design products and opportunities to highlight the defence sector, and the strong defence linkages between the two countries.
