In the January-August period, exports to Germany exceeded $3.2 billion with an increase of 13.5% compared to the same period of 2022. While Germany had a share of 14.2% in the total exports of the automotive industry last year, it managed to get a share of 14% in the January-August period.
With its performance until the end of this year, the sector aims to surpass last year’s export figure and bring its exports to Germany closer to $5 billion.
