You are invited to participate in an industry-focused webinar to discuss how British businesses can access export opportunities in the Turkish market and the UK’s plans to negotiate an upgraded Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with Turkey. 

UK-Turkey trading relationship:

  • The UK and Turkey are two powerhouse economies, with a thriving bilateral trade relationship which grew by more than 30% to £23.5 billion in the year to 2022.
  • Turkey presents huge opportunities for British businesses, with UK companies already exporting to its growing market of 85 million people.
  • An upgraded modern FTA will enhance access for British businesses to reach this growing population into the long-term future. We aim to sign a deal that incorporates the input from all nations and regions of the UK.

 

Call for Input from UK businesses:

  • On Thursday 2 November 2023, the Department for Business and Trade launched a call for input (CFI) on an upgraded FTA between the UK and Turkey. 
  • This CFI will run for 9 weeks until 5 January 2024 and provides an opportunity for stakeholders to provide valuable feedback and highlight their priorities in these negotiations.
  • If you would like to submit a response to this CFI, please do so here: https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/trade-with-turkey-call-for-input.
  • Speaker - Alex Mulchrone, Deputy Chair Negotiator for UK-Turkey FTA TBC rep from British Embassy in Turkey
