E-Kip Launch

With the vision of increasing exports in Türkiye, the Easy E- Export Platform (E-KİP) was developed to provide exporters with access to the right data they need through a single channel and to support their forward-looking decisions thanks to artificial intelligence and data science. The platform, which will contribute to increasing exports with its rich modules such as Smart E-Export Robot, Chatbot and Step-by-Step E-Export, will be introduced to domestic and international participants at the Istanbul Global E-Export Summit, and its first phase will be made available to citizens. During the summit, participants will be able to visit the platform in the experience areas and information presentations will be made.
