Turkish economy minister says expects record export growth in July
In comments to reporters late on Thursday, Zeybekci said Turkey will establish a free-trade zone for logistics and e-commerce next to Istanbul's third airport which is being built northwest of the city.
The minister said he expected talks on updating Turkey's customs union with the European Union to begin this year and be completed in 2018. He also said Ankara was working on plans to make Turkey a centre for global gold trade. ■
