Turkey Boosting Wide Range Of Exports: Pekcan

Government to provide nearly $642.7M in subsidies to exporters through end of year, says trade minister.

Under Turkey's state subsidies for exports, the top item in the Trade Ministry budget, some 3.7 billion Turkish liras ($642.7 million) will be provided to help exporters this year, said the trade minister on Friday.
"In the first 10 months of the year, the foreign trade balance made a positive contribution of $29.1 billion," Ruhsar Pekcan told Parliament's Planning and Budget Commission.
She stated that this positive performance in net exports helped fuel economic growth, with net exports contributing 9.7 points to Turkey's growth in the first half of 2019.
"While a significant portion of imports were done in dollars, a significant portion was also in euros," Pekcan said, adding that in the last nine months, a 5.9% drop in euro/dollar parity had a negative $3.92 billion effect on exports.
Stressing government support in almost every field of exports, she said nearly 12,000 green passports -- which ease visa requirements for many countries -- have been supplied to exporters.
"In many areas ranging from computer games and healthcare services to contracting and technical consultancy services, Turkey is in a highly competitive position for an exporting country," she added.
She said Turkish contracting companies have carried out a total of 9,900 projects and actual projects worth $392.7 billion in over 125 countries.
On free trade zones, Pekcan said as of October, the total trade volume in Turkey's 18 free trade zones reached $16.1 billion, making up a whopping 71% of Turkey's total exports.
"The share of high-tech exports from free trade zones is 9%," she said, adding that new specialized free trade zones are in the works to strengthen their potential.
Turkey's goal is to boost exports of high-tech products from free trade zones to the OECD average of 14%, she added.
