Turkey’s April exports reach record level

Yeni Safak - Turkey’s exports in April rose by 25 percent over the same month of the previous year and reached an all time high of USD 11.8 billion, solidifying expectations that the total exports in 2011 will exceed USD 127 billion.

The figures revealed by the Turkish Exporters Assembly (TIM) President Mehmet Buyukeksi show that the country’s exports in the first four months of 2011 increased by 22.2 percent and totaled USD 43.2 billion, while exports in April alone surged 25 percent, hitting USD 11.8 billion.

“Turkey’s ‘zero-problem’ foreign policy helps establish better trade relations with surrounding countries, which in turn increase exports to our neighbors,” said Buyukeksi at the press meeting, referring to steps taken by the government to facilitate doing business and trade with countries in the region. “Turkey’s exports to the countries in its region have risen considerably in the recent years,” said TIM President, noting that Iraq, Iran, Syria, Egypt and many others in the region have become important trade partners.
