Turkey Foreign Trade Statistics March 2022


Foreign Trade allows countries to expand their markets and access goods and services that otherwise may not have been available domestically. As a result of international trade, the market is more competitive, and this ultimately results in more competitive pricing and brings a cheaper product home to the consumer.

Foreign Trade and the accompanying financial transactions are generally conducted to provide a nation with commodities it lacks in exchange for those it produces in abundance; such transactions, functioning with other economic policies, tend to improve its standard of living.
