Turkey to reach African market via Egypt ro-ro ships as of March

Chairperson of the Chamber of Trade and Industry of the southern province of Mersin (MTSO), Serafettin Asut, said Wednesday that ro-ro ships would begin trips between Mersin and Egyptian city of Alexandria as of March 2011 based on an agreement the MTSO has signed with the Chamber of Trade and Industry of Alexandria.

In a written statement issued Wednesday, Asut said that he was re-elected as a member of the Foreign Economic Relations Board (DEIK) that works under the roof of the Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey (TOBB) to promote Turkey's international trade.

Our performance displayed in recent times as the DEIK and MTSO has contributed immensely to the commerce of the province, region and Turkey. Ferryboat trips began between Mersin and Beirut after DEIK's initiatives with Lebanon, Asut said.

Ro-ro ships will begin trips between Mersin and Alexandria in March, 2011. Accordingly, Turkey will be able to reach the African market via Mersin, Asut also said.
