Turkish economy doing better than others amid virus
Turkey will be among the fastest-recovering economies in 2021, when foreign trade conditions improve, Ruhsar Pekcan stressed during an online meeting organized by the Jewellery Exporters' Association.
Though world trade has contracted significantly, Turkey's exports were $12.4 billion in August, she recalled.
Citing online meetings and activities during the pandemic, she said Turkey met with officials from 40 countries via video conferences.
She also said jewellery was an important sector for Turkey and would continue to contribute to Turkey's exports. ■
