Trade Delegations to Visit American States to Boost Turkish Exports

Foreign Trade Undersecretary Tuncer Kayalar said that several US states have been selected as targets for a program to boost Turkish trade with the United States. Trade delegations will be sent to New York, California, Texas, Georgia, Illinois and Florida as target states. Kayalar explained that under the Foreign Trade Undersecretariat’s strategy for improving trade and investment with the US, implemented in 2006, a state-based and sector-oriented approach has been adopted for improving exports to the US. He identified their target sectors as textiles and ready-wear apparel, food, chemical products, non-iron metals, leather and leather products, electronic goods, machinery, automotive supply, processed natural stones, ceramic goods, furniture and jewelry.

This would appear to be the tactical approach that the Foreign Trade Ministry adopted in 2006, only to abandon it after just two trade mission visits.
