Georgian-Turkish trade cooperation

By Messenger Staff
Friday, October 5
Since Russia imposed an embargo on Georgian products in 2006 Turkey has become Georgia’s biggest trading partner. 10 % of all Georgian exports go to Turkey and 18 % of all imports into Georgia arrive from Turkey. There is in fact a negative trade balance in favor of Turkey. In 2011 for every one dollar's worth of Georgian exports to Turkey 5.6 dollars worth of Turkish products were imported into Georgia.Thus Georgian consumers are supporting Turkish industry as well as Turkish agriculture.
