Although the increase is not too high, we made a significant export in a period where half of the sectors receded in exports. In the first half of September, we made a serious increase of 20% compared to last year. By exporting to 208 countries and regions in 2019, we reached every corner of the world with our exports. We witnessed export losses amounting to 50% in the era where the effect of the pandemic was felt the worst. Our government provided us all the support within its capabilities. I would like to extend my gratitude to our President, Our Trade Minister Mrs. Ruhsar Pekcan, all other esteemed ministers and our bureaucrats that raised communication to the top level, selflessly during this process.”
“Turkey continues to diverge positively”
Attending the ceremony via video conference, Trade Minister Ruhsar Pekcan stated that Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Metals sector offered high added value with respect to production, export and employment. Minister Pekcan added “Ferrous and Non Ferrous Metals sector is one of the locomotive sectors of our country with respect to infrastructure, construction and defense industries. It is a sector that grows with effective market and marketing strategies. We closely monitor reports that contain the expectations of organizations such as World Trade Organization and IMF on the outlook of the world economies. Global economy is experiencing its toughest year after the World War 2.
Turkey continues to diverge positively in such a period where almost all world economies have inevitably contracted. We, as the ministry, will continue to stand by our exporters. I individually congratulate each company being awarded.”
“Leader in Export Performance”
TİM Chairman İsmail Gülle expressed that Ferrous and Non Ferrous Metals sector has made exports exceeding $5bn in the first 8 months of the year and added “we successfully completed the first eight months of 2020 despite the challenging outlook in global trade. We even exceeded last year with our daily trade figures. Ferrous and Non Ferrous Metals sector is among the leading sectors that support our general export performance. Sector exported over $5bn in the first eight months of 2020. When we examine the exports of our sector, especially country groups, we see that our exporters have made a long way in diversifying markets.
Ferrous and Non Ferrous Metals sector is among the sectors that positively contribute to unit value of our exports. Sector is among the leaders in export unit price with $3.29 in the first eight months of the year. Furthermore, I would like to announce proudly that all our companies whether awarded or not, perform a major duty.”
