"In 2008, exports were 132 billion U.S. dollars and it was a great achievement. The figure dropped to 102.2 billion U.S. dollars in 2009," he said.

Caglayan said that the country's exports would exceed 112 billion U.S. dollar in 2010.

Turkey would reach 500 billion U.S. dollars of exports in 2023, he added.
