Turkiye’s exports to the USA reached a record level of $14 billion 362 million last year.
Turkiye’s exports to the USA, which is its strategic partner in trade, reached its historical peak.
The demand for Turkish products in the USA, which has an economy of $20 trillion, continued to increase in 2022. While Turkiye remains a center of attraction for world brands, the increase in investment and trade between the two countries has enabled Turkiye to obtain more effective results in its foreign sales to the country.
The USA demand for Turkish products peaked as USA companies headquartered in the USA and operating in Turkiye expanded their commercial activities in Turkiye.
According to the information compiled by AA correspondent from the data of the Turkish Exporters Assembly (TIM), Turkiye’s exports to the USA reached a record level of $14 billion 362 million last year.
While exports to the USA increased by 11.8% in 2022 compared to the previous year, the share of the USA in Turkiye’s exports was 5.6%. Thus, the USA became the second country to which Turkiye exported the most last year.
