Minister of Trade Omer Bolat stated that exports were realized at the level of $2 billion 121 million with a historical record yesterday and said, “The threshold of $2 billion in daily exports has been exceeded.”
Minister Bolat shared about the daily export record on his social media account.
Bolat, in his message, “Our exports amounted to $2 billion 121 million with a daily historical record on June 23. The threshold of $2 billion in daily exports has been exceeded.”
Bolat pointed out that the daily export value exceeded the annual exports in 1977 ($1 billion 753 million) and the monthly export values in 1999 ($1 billion 940 million in August). He stated that despite the weak course in the global economy and trade, this historical daily export value shows the dynamism and resilience of exporters.
Bolat pointed out that the temporary Manufacturing Industry Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) for June decreased to 43.6 in the Eurozone, while it was 41 in Germany, the largest trading partner, at the lowest level of the last 37 months.
“Our priority in the upcoming period is to ensure a healthy growth environment, on the one hand, by ensuring a sustainable increase in exports with high added value and reducing the need for imports, and on the other hand, reducing the external resource pressure that harms macroeconomic stability. In addition, with the establishment of macroeconomic stability, a suitable environment will be provided for investments, and we will resolutely continue our efforts for the strong operation of the investment-high value-added production-export chain.”
