Turkey Eyes More Turkish Trade Centers Abroad
Turkey plans to open 35 more Turkish Trade Centers in various regions worldwide, the country's trade minister said on Friday.
"Currently we have five Turkish Trade Centers (TTC) in 15 sectors. Our new aim is to open centers in 35 more destinations," Ruhsar Pekcan told Anadolu Agency's Editors' Desk in the capital Ankara.
She said the country will continue to hit export records through the end of the year.
"We will increase this and close out 2018 with a record." She said the ministry's main purpose is to pave the way for businesses, and therefore to collaborate with other ministries.
"We protect our producer-exporters under the rules of the World Trade Organization. Accordingly, we take various measures," Pekcan said.
The ministry aims to give prominence to quality and increase the number of exporters, especially in the field of technology, the minister added.
