Turkish minister in US seeks deals on trade, exports

 

Turkish State Minister for foreign trade Zafer Caglayan has said they were trying to establish a new trade mechanism with the United States.

Caglayan and a large group of Turkish businesspeople have arrived in the U.S. to boost Turkish exports to the U.S..

Caglayan continues to hold talks in Chicago, the third largest city of the U.S..

Speaking to reporters in Chicago, Caglayan said that the U.S. imported textile goods worth 67 billion USD annually.

Out of this figure, China sends textile goods worth 27 billion USD while Turkey's textile exports to the U.S. are worth at around only 270 million USD. We want to sign a new generation agreement with the U.S.. We are trying to establish a new trade mechanism with the U.S., Caglayan said.

U.S. companies want to open up to the Middle East and Africa with the cooperation of Turkish companies. Turkey is a door opening to the Middle East, Africa, Caucasus and Europe for U.S. companies, Caglayan said.

Caglayan said that they wanted U.S. companies to produce goods in Turkey and sell these goods in the U.S. market.

We want U.S. companies to get to know the Turkish market better, Caglayan said.

Minister Caglayan said that Turkey would open new offices of commercial attaches in the U.S. cities of Houston and Miami soon.

Turkey already has commercial attaches in Washington, D.C., New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.
