Doing Business in Turkey

June 30, 2021 at 10:00 AM- 11:00 AM

Turkey achieved 1.8% growth during 2020 with Turkey’s 85 million consumers purchasing £4.9 billion of British goods throughout the year, demonstrating exceptionally good performance in a year when the majority of economies suffered a significant drop in similar economic activities. The main exports from the UK to Turkey include machinery, metals, pharmaceutical/medical, chemical and plastic products.

Bridging South Eastern Europe and Western Asia, Turkey is the UK’s 16th largest trading partner. Turkey maintains a diverse economy, with their top exports of goods including vehicles, machinery, electrical equipment, metals, textiles and plastics. Great Britain imported goods worth £8.8 billion from Turkey during 2020, the second largest importer only to Germany.

Turkey presents a good opportunity for investment, and is ranked 33rd in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Index out of 190 nations.

This webinar will aim to help participants in gaining:

  • Valuable trade insights into Turkish market opportunities
  • An outline of the trading changes under the UK-Turkey Free Trade Agreement
  • Practical advice on how to successfully engage and build relationships with Turkish business partners.


The event will be held online, with our expert speakers gathered in the UK to present their outlook on the market, provide practical advice and examples from local businesses and provide answers to any questions you may have. This event is being delivered in collaboration with Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber of Commerce & Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce.
