The customs Minister Bulent Tyufenkchi argues that the acute phase of crisis between Turkey and Russia is over and the relations between the two countries bit by bit are normalized.
If remember first days after the incident, the number of Turkish goods, which aren’t allowed by the Russian customs, is well decreased.
“At this stage, the Turkish producers don’t have particular problems when they export peppers, cucumbers and tomatoes to Russia. The embargo only affects citrus – producers’ oranges and tangerines really go through difficult times.
On the domestic Turkish market formed a abundance of these products, so the price fell as for citrus fruits in Turkey. But export of cucumbers, on the contrary, has been increased in volume. The agricultural producers are glad that the price of cucumbers rose.
In other sectors of production after the sanctions’ imposition, we note that the export of leather shoes to Russia has been increased. I don’t think that the sector of leather clothing, shoes and accessories made in Turkey for a long time will be under sanctions “, – the situation was commented by customers Minister.
