The Ministry of Customs and Trade will initiate a new system to provide a consultancy service to exporters reaching a certain volume and solve their customs problems, Minister Bülent Tüfenkci announced. The ministry will also be able to deal with customs problems, delays or difficulties by directing exporters to a regional customs assistant manager.
Minister Tüfenkci drew attention to October export figures, which reached a record-high with an increase of close to 15 percent.
Explaining that the contribution rates of growth exports are satisfactory, Tüfenkci noted that the ministry foresees a growth model based on exports for Turkey and that it continues to work in this direction.
The minister also pointed out that the ministry reduces the waiting periods for exports every year with the new customs applications.
"Now we're starting a system to make customs procedures even faster. Especially in order to support our exporters, we will initiate a system to provide a kind of consultancy service to exporters reaching a certain size and solve their customs problems," Tüfenkci said. The aim is to produce more and export to new markets.
Minister Tüfenkci stated that the ministry will work with the commitment to the medium-term growth plans in line with the targets they set, stressing that every step will be aimed at expanding Turkey's economy.
Turkey's exports increased by 15.6 percent in October to reach $13.5 billion year-on-year and exports in the first 10 months of this year reached $128.7 billion, 11 percent higher than it was during the same period last year. In addition, exports over the last 12 months also increased by 10.7 percent to hit $154.2 billion.
